This family lives out a mission that reflects the principles of the Knights of Columbus. Their family motto is “Your life is a gift from God. What you do with your life is your gift to Him.” These are not just words to them, but how they live out their faith. They are grateful that God has given them so much and deliberately give back to him.
Pat and Gisele have been married for 26 years and have three children: Dominic, Gianna and Anthony, who all graduated from All Saints Catholic School.
Gisele and Pat have been helping with the parish’s Christmas Giving Tree ministry for over 10 years. Christmas 2019 marks the seventh year that they have served as the leaders of this ministry. Their children help with this huge annual effort to ensure that children, who would otherwise go without, receive Christmas gifts.
For their significant contributions to the parish and the community it serves, the Council, once again, recognizes Pat, Gisele, Dominic, Gianna, and Anthony… the Matarese family.
Congratulations, Pat and Gisele!
