Updated April 9.
We continue to reach out to the community with our monthly Food Pantry. On March 22, we adapted to social distancing by hosting a drive-thru pantry. Food items were dropped off at the parish before dawn, placed into individual bags and handed out during the morning to our neighbors.
We invite to give to St. Matthew’s electronically via our secure donation portal.
We invite you to worship with us Holy Week as we will stream all the services listed below.
Good Friday, April 10, we will stream the Liturgy of the Day at noon and Way of the Cross service at 6p
Holy Saturday, April 11, the Vigil will be streamed from the Cathedral at 7p (links will be provided when they are available)
Easter, April 12, we will stream the service with musicians and a small choral group at 10a
These services will be streamed on our Facebook page, YouTube Channel and here on our website. Click here to view the Liturgy of the Day at Noon and here to view the Way of the Cross at 6p on our server.
St. Matthew’s is following the directive issued by The Right Reverend Terry Allen White in regards to onsite services and programming. The directive states:
“Effective March 20, all in-person worship and parish meetings, studies, and gatherings
of any kind are suspended until further notice. All should prepare for this suspension to last
through the end of May. I reserve the right to revise or extend this directive as this health
emergency and a myriad of other issues unfold in the commonwealth, nation, and world.”
We remind you that during this time, when our parish doors are closed, our hearts remain open. We will continue to worship together, online, on Sunday mornings at 10a and on Wednesdays at 10a for the Healing Eucharist.
Additional information about online services and meetings will be posted here and on our Facebook page as updates become available.
Go to our Facebook page to stream current services or click here (if you do not have a Facebook account) to see current services streamed on our website. The feed from Facebook will visible on the right hand side of the page, under a gray box that reads “Now Facebook”.
