Our Mission Statement
With the word of God as our foundation, the people of Saint Matthew Catholic Parish strive to be the presence of God in our community. We do so through joyful worship, fellowship with our members, a welcoming spirit to visitors and seekers, an increasing willingness to give of our time, talent and treasure to serve God's people and a desire to spread our faith through ongoing spiritual growth.
Stations of the Cross and Lenten Suppers during Lent
Every Friday during Lent, there are outdoor Stations of the Cross in St. James Pavilion beginning at 6:00 p.m. In the case of inclement weather, Stations of the Cross will be held in the church.
A Lenten supper will follow the Stations of the Cross. This week, the St. Vincent de Paul Society is sponsoring the Lenten supper. All are welcome!
Please consider donating a non-perishable food item to help the St. Vincent de Paul Society feed the hungry in our neighborhood.

Meaning of Stewardship
Stewardship encompasses much more than the generation of revenue. It is that call to each of us to support our parish in all ways possible. Stewardship draws upon the talents, expertise, and hard work of parishioners.
Stewardship is not only a way to give back to the parish, it also is the best way to become involved, to meet people, and to feel a part of our Catholic community in the Diocese of St. Petersburg. St. Matthew’s Parish encourages all of its members to make a commitment to be actively involved in the parish through all three of the following:
• Attending Mass
Please join all of us in your parish family on weekends and holy days as we gather together, sing God’s praises, listen to His Word, and celebrate the Eucharist.
• Giving Financial Support – Sign up for electronic on-line giving or use weekly offertory envelopes.
• Offering Time and Talent as service to the parish community through one of our parish ministries or organizations.
