Our Building and Grounds
Entrances: The front entrance to St. Matthew Cathedral is located at 1701 Miami Street between E. Dubail Street and E. Dayton St. There are also entrances to the church from the parking lots on the north and south sides of the Cathedral and school building. The south parking area (accessed from E. Dayton Street) is the largest off-the-street parking area at our church. Those side entrances will take you into side vestibules off the front of the church, while the Miami St. entrance takes you into the back of the church — the “narthex.”
Handicap Access: Handicapped parking is available in the south parking lot. There is room for wheelchairs in the front left section of the church, near the south door entrance.
Hearing Assistance: Hearing assistance devices are available at all services in the “server sacristy” (room near the north entrance to the church). Please see any usher for assistance.
Seating: You are welcome to sit anywhere. Pews on the front left of the church have additional space for wheelchairs.
Lavatories: Restrooms are located on either side in the Miami St. entrance of the church.
Fussy Babies and Children: Babies and children of all ages are welcome. If your baby is crying excessively, please take him or her to the rear of the church (Miami St. entrance) or into the “cry room” (also known as the “bridal room”) on the north side of the Miami St. entrance.
Kneeling: Our pews contain kneelers and we kneel as a sign of reverence during portions of prayer. Members of other religions and people with health problems may sit during the kneeling times.
Summer and Winter Concerns: Our church is air conditioned in the summer. Because our pastors live in the rectory, adjacent to the church, we always have Mass (even during significant snowfall) in the winter. However, if it is unsafe for you to travel during winter weather, we encourage you to remain at home.
