St. Matthew Catholic Church, Come Worship God With us!

St. Matthew Catholic Church - Reaching up with Hope, Reaching out with Love.   Our worship of God is centered on the Holy Trinity. At every Mass our worship is directed to the Father, from whom all blessings come, through his Son Jesus, in the unity of the Holy Spirit. We praise the Father who first called us to be his people by sending us his Son as our Redeemer and giving us the Holy Spirit.  We gather together every Sunday to remember what God has done for us, and to share in the blessings of salvation. Come join us!

Confession every Saturday from 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.  If you haven’t been to Confession in a while, the Catholic Church wants to welcome you back, and invites you to participate in this beautiful sacrament of healing. Take a step in faith. You’ll be surprised about how free you feel after taking part in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. So many Catholics describe incredible feelings of peace, joy, relief, and love that they never expected. Jesus is calling you to experience His mercy in this way too. 

We are in need of Altar Servers for our weekend (Saturday & Sunday) masses. To serve your child(ren) must have received their First Communion and be 9 years old. Training will be provided in the near future. Please contact Silvia Amaro, Altar Server Coordinator through the church.
