Friends, neighbors and visitors are welcome to attend the special events planned for our 175th Anniversary Year Celebration.

Featured Memories

Can you guess which of the persons pictured in the mural above the Cathedral main entrance has submitted a memory of St. Matthew's for us to enjoy? Paired up with this memory from St. Matthew's early days is one from a new parishioner who, along with her husband, already has found our parish - their parish - to be a home.
