Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer, one of the offices of the Liturgy of the Hours, is prayed on Tuesdays and Fridays at 7:30am in St. Anthony’s Chapel. We gather to give praise for a new day and all that is yet to be, relying on the Holy Spirit who unites the Church at prayer. Feel free to join this small group. Prayer leaflets are provided each day.

Prayers and Welcome, Archbishop Gregory!

St. Matthew’s joins with the Church of Washington in welcoming its new shepherd, Archbishop Wilton Gregory, as the seventh Archbishop of Washington! What's in store? At his April 4 press conference he said, “I seek to reinvigorate a new hope. I have to be in the parishes. I have to meet with our priests.” ......“I want to establish a bond and encounter the people of the archdiocese. I have to be in the field. The best time for any bishop is the time they spend with their people. I want to be in the midst of our people, listening to them, praying with them, dining with them.”
