Stations of the Cross

Join us each Friday of the Lenten Season at 5:30pm to pray the ancient prayers of the Via Crucis, or Way of the Cross.  This timeless prayer can be prayed all year round but during Lent we give it special attention as it recalls the events leading up to Our Lord’s Crucifixion and Death.

All For One! – Perpetual Adoration

St. Matthew Parish is expanding and improving how all of us can support and participate in the Adoration of Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament. 


The main change is the introduction of a very friendly online program  called We Adore Him ( This program will help you easily manage your participation in Eucharistic Adoration and allow many more people to participate, to make adoration truly perpetual: Jesus is never alone! Please take a minute to explore the We Adore Him page and see how it will work for you. Questions?? Email us at
