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.
"Thank You" to our Volunteers
Sisters Encouraging And Sharing ON Scriptures (SEASONS) is delighted to inform the community of St. Matthew that there are 254 individual volunteers who assist our parish in a variety of ways! Many of those folks help out in several ministries, yet were only counted as one volunteer. As a result, the participation of so many speaks volumes about the commitment and dedication nearly 50% of those attending weekend Masses exhibit all year long! This is a phenomenal reflection of the heart, care and time given to our parish! We worked very hard to make sure each person was recognized by name, but if for some reason you did not receive your token of appreciation, please e-mail Karen at or call 393-0805, and we can make arrangements for delivery. Remember, though, that there are personally tagged gift bags in the sacristy for those Eucharistic Ministers, Readers and Altar Servers that are waiting to be picked up when you arrive for your ministry. SEASONS and your fellow parishioners APPRECIATE ALL who volunteer!
None of us really “own” any of our time. It all belongs to God. So make a small return to Him with some of your time. Join us for the Light of the World Retreat. Take a step on your journey toward a deeper relationship with Jesus. Those joining you will be your fellow parishioners. The team presenting the retreat are parishioners like you. The retreat takes place right here at St. Matthew and you will go home at night to sleep in your own bed.
So why not?

Reason to Come Back to the Church
People want to have meaning in life. In the busyness of today’s world, many people realize that their lives have lost a sense of meaning or purpose. They may ask themselves “what is life all about?” Why do I do the things I do?” There is also widespread confusion in our society in areas of morality and truth. The Catholic Church offers hope which gives meaning to our existence. This leads to eternal life.
Childhood memories can surface as well. Many people will tell you that childhood memories of being connected to God pop up in later life. They start to ask themselves if it is possible to recapture the simplicity of faith they once had. They may ask if God is really watching me. The secularization of society leads people away from their spiritual side. The Catholic Church offers both mystical and religious experiences. These experiences feed the mind, heart, body, and soul.
