We ARE Saint Matthew School

My Dear Eighth Grade Graduates:

“I give thanks to my God every time I think of you – which is constantly in every prayer I say.” (Philippians 1:3) These words of St. Paul express my heart as you prepare to take the next step on your life’s journey.

I am grateful to God for the GRACE each of you have been to me personally and for the love, generosity, and enthusiasm you have brought to Saint Matthew School. My prayer is that you will continually remember that God’s love and mercy are unconditional and without limit, and that your greatest success and deepest peace will only be found in believing and living the message of the Gospel.

Know that I will miss you very much. May your High School days be happy and enriching in every way. I anticipate with much pride hearing “wonderful things” about your future.

Always stay close to Jesus and Mary! Congratulations to the class of 2014.

Happy Graduation! Have a terrific summer!

Love and Prayers,

Sister Kathleen Touey, IHM

P.S. Remember always that one person (and that is you) can make a difference in the world.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

May Mary, our Mother, continue to bless you and all your loved ones during the month dedicated to her.

After sixteen years of having the privilege of serving as Principal at Saint Matthew School, I have been reassigned to Saint Pius X Parish in Broomall, PA. In leaving, I will take with me cherished memories of everything about Saint Matthew Parish and School. I am especially grateful to you for entrusting your children to my care over these years. Your children made me happy everyday with their sincere love of God, love of family, and love of Saint Matthew School. I often said each day as I prepared to enter school, “Another day in Paradise.”

My heart is sad to leave Saint Matthew; however, I am grateful that our community allowed me to stay for sixteen years (that is not the norm). My life has been blessed with a wonderful and dedicated pastor, phenomenal staff and faculty, and awesome parents and students.

Sister John Magdalen Eibell has been assigned as your new principal of Saint Matthew School. Sister John is a very gifted and experienced principal. She has many gifts and talents to be shared with the Saint Matthew Community. I assured Sister John Magdalen of your renowned cooperation and welcoming spirit and assured her how fortunate she is to steer the ship as Principal of the best school in the Archdiocese.

Thank you for your cooperation and support over these past sixteen years. Pray for me as I will do for all of you. My heart is full of gratitude to God for the privilege of serving as your principal.

It has been an experience for the ages!

With Love & Gratitude,

Sister Kathleen Touey, IHM
