St. Matthias Men’s Club

The men of St. Matthias have organized the St. Matthias Men’s Club.  The goal of the club is to provide a regular opportunity for the men of the parish and school to get to know one another.   We will organize periodic social events, such as Cubs game outings.  The club will also commit to improving the school and parish through occasional minor maintenance projects and an annual fundraiser for the benefit of the school sports program.

The club is open to any and all who want to participate.  Meetings are generally held the first Thursday of each month in the convent and start at 7:30 PM. Food and drinks are provided.

Meeting Dates:

First Thursday Of the month at 7:30pm. Entrance is back basement door of the convent.

Men’s Club supports Mustang Athletics

The St. Matthias Men’s Club presented its annual donation to the Athletics Department – a check for $2,500 which helped the school purchase its new basketball hoops for our gym.

Ken Hancock of the Men’s Club presented the check. The Men’s Club is committed to continue its support for St. Matthias Athletics through annual fundraising efforts and to support our Mustangs with needed maintenance projects for our school and gym.  The $2,500 donation was made possible by the many fundraisers the Men’s Club hosts throughout the year, including the Cubs Outing, Golf Tournament and Movie Nights, all of which were dedicated to support St Matthias Athletics.

Many thanks to Ken Hancock for spearheading the efforts to get these new basketball hoops installed, both through his work on the Sports Board and the Men’s Club!

Rectory Garden Project

The Men’s Club worked to improve the rectory garden. The garden is used frequently for church receptions, meetings, and general socializing.

A new fence was installed around the garden. Together with improvements made to the patio and the gazebo, these upgrades will help ensure the garden continues to be a treasured resource! Members John Tuttle, Bob Ryan, and Mark Huber provided above-and-beyond effort.
