Ordinations to the Priesthood and Diaconate

Five seminarians who served at St. Matthew's during the 2018-2019 academic year were ordained to the diaconate in March or April. In addition, two transitional deacons who have served at St. Matthew's during the past two academic years will be ordained to the priesthood in May or June. We are grateful for the ministries each has pursued here at St. Matthew's. Let's keep them in our prayers as they prepare for to begin their diaconal or priestly ministries.

A Special Connection to Recall on this Independence Day Weekend

A treasure chest full of St. Matthew's memories was collected during our 175th Anniversary Year, in 2015. We share during this Independence Day weekend of 2019 a memory from a parishioner who descended from Msgr. Thomas Sim Lee, the builder and first pastor of St. Matthew's Church on Rhode Island Avenue. Note also  the special relationship, through Msgr. Lee, between St. Matthew's and the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence!
