St. Matthew’s, Indianapolis, has enjoyed a 62-year relationship with Boy Scout Troop 161 that is still going strong! On the recent Scout Sunday, the parish had a house full of Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Webelos (WE’ll BE LOyal Scouts) and their families, plus a successful bake sale!
With Christmas Day falling on a Sunday this year, St. Matthew’s, Indianapolis, has elected to try and hold its Blue Christmas service on Sunday at 11 a.m. Other parishes in the diocese have held services for those who are hurting this season at other times in December.
