Single Servings of Service

Single Servings of Service allows parishioners to volunteer in a meaningful way without making a long-term commitment. This service program allows St. Matthew’s to reach out in service to a wider community, since recipients of single servings of service are a variety of nonprofit service agencies that serve different populations within the Washington, D.C. area.
