On September 19 the St. Matthew Cathedral School and Parish community celebrated the contributions of the many parishioners, faculty, and students – past and present – who help our community thrive. We enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate with our third annual Legacy Day reward recipients, Paul and Kathy Schoenle, along with many alumni and former faculty.
My name is Gisella Mancini. I am excited for the opportunity to be the new kindergarten teacher at your school. I have been a parishioner at St. Matthew Cathedral since the early 1990s. When I joined the parish part of my family were already parishioners. Joe and Gail Mancini as well as their three children - Blair, Stephanie and Matthew Mancini - had been parishioners and involved in the parish school. Following them to various school functions and sporting activities began my love for St. Matthew Cathedral School.

Have you heard about the SGO (Scholarship Granting Organization)? It is a great way to help our diocesan schools with financial aid to qualifying families and it provides a tax credit to the donor! Tax credits include a 50% state tax rebate and 25% federal deduction off the remaining amount of the donation.
On November 17, St. Matthew Cathedral School played host to the Parish and School Craft Bazaar. The gym and school hallways were filled with over 65 vendors who participated in the event. From holiday gifts to scarves for pets, soaps to knick-knacks, and holiday signs to religious reading materials, the halls of St. Matthew were a flurry of activity and holiday cheer!
