Until further notice, St. Matthew’s will be closed for Sunday services. Mass will be celebrated by essential clergy and servers on Sunday at 9:00 am. This Mass will be livestreamed to all of our members so that they can make a spiritual communion. We believe this is the best way at this time to be good citizens and also to be faithful to our vocation.
During this time apart from the communal life of our parish, ministry to the children and families of St. Matthew’s will continue. Resources have been created and compiled for you to assist you with the different elements of our Children’s Ministry, including Godly Play, Liturgy of the Word, Education Hour Bible Story lessons, and various orders/prayers that are friendly for use with children.
Tithes and Offerings
As we are currently live-streaming our Sunday Mass, tithes and offerings are now being accepted by mail and online.
