    Youth drop-in night

    This is an evening for St. Matthew's youth and their friends to come together for pizza, and unscheduled time. If they need to do homework, write a paper, or catch up on schoolwork, this will be a place to make that possible. They will also be free to play video games, watch a movie, just sit and socialize or to talk to someone if they need a safe person to talk to.
