Prayers for Sri Lanka

St. Matthew’s Cathedral Parish community joins its prayers with those of people and communities around the globe for our brothers and sisters who died or suffered injury in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, for their loved ones, and for the first responders and rescuers. We pray also for the conversion of heart of the perpetrators and of all who may be on the brink of committing violence. May the peace of the Risen Christ reign in hearts and communities around our world. Our Lady, help of Christians, pray for us!

Scrutinies for the Elect: Prayers for our Seven!

The season of Lent coincides with the Purification and Enlightenment phase of the RCIA process. The Scrutinies are celebrated at the 11:30am Mass on the third, fourth and fifth Sundays of Lent, this Sunday, April 7, being the last. During the Scrutinies with our Elect, we look within ourselves to find anything that keeps us from Christ and then look to Christ to heal those weaknesses and to strengthen us as we face further temptations. Please keep our seven members of the Elect in your prayers.

Thinking of Returning?

If you are a Catholic who has been away, or “used to be Catholic” we invite you to be an active part of us again. Landings is a Paulist Ministry run by St. Matthew's Cathedral parishioners and aimed at welcoming Catholics who want to deepen their faith and commitment.
