All women parishioners and friends are invited to St. Matthew’s Annual Women’s Retreat on the weekend of April 24 - 26 at the Washington Retreat House in Northeast Washington, DC.
St. Matthew's is a place of encounter—with the Lord, with self, and with others. Our two currently featured St. Matthew's memories make that clear. Read on to find out how the Taj Mahal comes into the picture, and how the Cathedral figured into one man's introspection.
Each spring during the Easter season, St. Matthew’s offers adult Confirmation preparation for active, baptized Catholics who already have received their First Eucharist. Registration forms are available through Theresa Prymuszewski, Pastoral Associate for Faith Formation, at 202-587-5139 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friends, neighbors and visitors are all invited and welcome to join St. Matthew's Parish community at the special events planned for our 175th Anniversary Celebration.
