Dear Friends and Neighbors, 

On behalf of the VVPA family we would like to wish happy Passover and Easter to all who celebrate, and we hope this season brings joy, happiness and health to you and your loved ones!

St Matthews Church Needs Our Support 
St. Mattew’s Church is a long standing friend and community partner to the Van Vorst Park Association and the Barrow Mansion. Today they need our support more than ever:   

“We’re excited to announce that as of now, you can do your giving to St. Matthew’s online! As we’ve moved to remote worship services in these difficult times, you can consider this a virtual offering plate. If you have been unable to do your normal weekly giving and would like to, you can use the online system and select “Offering”.

We also want to let you know that our Food Pantry ministry is still very much running at this time. In fact, the need is greater than ever right now. If you would like to give specifically to the Food Pantry, you can use the same link and select “St. Matthew’s Food Pantry” to target your gift to help feed our neighbors.”
