My Dear People of God,
For one hundred thirty four years St. Matthew’s Parish has welcomed diverse peoples into its arms of love to worship God and celebrate the most important events of human life. In the Roman Catholic tradition, we listen to God’s Word in the Sacred Scriptures and experience the grace of conversion. We get to know Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Through the celebration of the Church’s Sacraments we are given the free grace to be saved for all eternity. What a wonderful gift God’s love is for us and His grace making us brothers and sisters in the Lord.
We welcome all who come to be a part of our community and we have a place for all. With us, you will enjoy faithful Catholic Preaching and the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy of the Church. You will hear beautiful sacred music directing our hearts and minds to God and His love for us. Our historic Basilica like church building inspires all who enter its walls. With Meyer of Munich windows, imported Italian statuary by DiPrato of Chicago, a majestic pipe organ and choir, we have the ideal place to celebrate the worship of the Church and bring its message and charity to the surrounding community.
Again, you are welcome to become a member of St. Matthew’s Parish. Pray and worship with us and bask in the glory of God.
