As the date for the celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist draws closer, St. Matthew's RCIA Elect celebrated one of the RCIA Scrutinies at the 5:30pm Mass on Sunday, July 12, 2020. See the photos of this celebration, with Fr. Timothy Kesicki,SJ as celebrant.
Twenty-five years ago, on July 1, 1995, Msgr. Jameson began his assignment as Rector of the Cathedral. Congratulations and thanks to Msgr. for 25 years of leadership and care, capped by the recent reopening of our Cathedral for public worship, in a new way, after the unprecedented closure.
Msgr. Jameson in this video walks us through the changes you will notice at public celebrations of Mass at the Cathedral, which begin Sunday, June 28th! See also our two-page Guide for Participation at Public Celebration of Mass (Guía para participación en la celebración pública de la Misa).
While the Cathedral has reopened for Masses, Confessions continue to be heard by appointment in the North Conference Room. Call the parish office at 202-347-3215 to make an appointment, leaving your phone number, and one of our priests will return your call. Social distancing will be maintained for Confession.
Summer 2020 can be a season of rich spiritual growth in our eucharistic spirituality. St. Matthew's hosts a 5-session Bible Study by Little Rock Scripture Study on The Eucharist in Scripture. Register for either of two groups that will meet via Microsoft Teams video and/or conference call - one on Sunday afternoons, and one on Monday evenings.
Msgr. Jameson, Cathedral Rector, has announced the reopening of the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle for public liturgies beginning June 28, 2020. Masses had been suspended since March 14, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. See our new Mass schedule and guide for participating. We look forward to celebrating the Eucharist with our parishioners and friends safely and joyfully!
