Welcome to St. Matthew

***As part of our ongoing renovations, the Adoration chapel will be closed Wednesday, September 22, from 8am–4pm so that work can be done in the chapel. The main Church will be open at that time for private prayer. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your commitment to adoring our Lord! ***

*** There will be no Mass at 7 am on Monday, September 20. There will be a Communion Service instead. Thank you for your understanding. Mass is now able to be offered on Thursday, September 23 whereas it was previously communicated to be a Communion service.***

Many of our Masses are being live streamed on YouTube!

 Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration 

Our perpetual adoration chapel is now open again! Doors are keycard access only — even daytime adorers need a keycard.

Adorers should sign up for their holy hour at stmatt.weadorehim.com. Through the site, you can sign up for a regular weekly commitment, or just a one-time visit.

If you need assistance creating a We Adore Him account or obtaining a keycard, please contact Joe Taylor at the parish office or send an email to adoration@stmatt.net.
