Our parish Monday morning ministry to the homeless has continued, with proper precautions, through these months of the pandemic.

Beginning March 16, 2020, the Monday after St. Matthew's Parish facilities closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, St. Matthew’s Homeless ministry staff led by Norma Canedo and Fr. John Benson, and generous volunteers, began serving up to 60 lunches to our guests at a morning sidewalk session in front of the Cathedral. Thanks to our committed volunteers! 

How can you help?

  • Sign up to prepare 10 lunches at home and donate them once a month
  • Sign up to help distribute lunches and toiletries once a month
  • Donate gently worn men’s clothing items: t-shirts, sweatpants, khakis, jeans, sneakers, men’s work boots, backpacks for adults (must schedule drop-off)

To help in any of these ways, please contact Norma Canedo
