175th Anniversary Special Events

Friends, neighbors and visitors are welcome to attend the special events planned for our 175th Anniversary Year Celebration, which began with Choral Vespers, An Ecumenical Prayer Service on January 25th. In our 175th year we look now, as always, to the living stones of St. Matthew’s—our parishioners and clergy, friends and benefactors—and invite all to join us in celebration, and further anticipation, of our parish’s graced growth into a vibrant and diverse community alive in Christ.

Happy Feast of Pentecost!

On Pentecost Sunday, May 24, Bishop Martin D. Holley celebrates a special Mass at 3pm in the Cathedral. Catholics from around the Archdiocese of Washington will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, including 24 people who have been prepared for the sacrament at St. Matthew’s. Let us celebrate with them this final step in their initiation and keep them in our prayers.
