The beautiful and historic Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle and downtown parish community depend entirely on the financial support of Cathedral parishioners, friends and visitors.

We sincerely thank you for your continuing generosity and invite you to consider the ways in which you can contribute.
The Gospels calls us to be good stewards of our time, talent and treasures. As good stewards of our treasures, parishioners are encouraged to contribute to the general operations of the parish and the many services it provides to the parish and the larger community. There are two forms in which these contributions can be made: the regular and special offerings at all the weekend Masses or, more easily through our automated electronic giving.
Electronic Giving. The preferred and convenient option for your offerings is our electronic giving program, which enables a parishioner to make donations on a regular basis by direct payments debited from one's bank account or by charge to a personal credit card on a monthly basis. You can enroll at the Faith Direct website that also describes more completely this electronic option for giving. Our parish access code to the website is DC284. more about e-giving with Faith Direct ».
