So sorry for the warmth of the church last weekend. The one storm on Saturday afternoon apparently knocked out a circuit breaker in the chiller and therefore no air.
I wanted to let everyone know that I received an official copy of a letter from Bishop Rhoades this past Wednesday appointing Reverend Dermot Gahan to Parochial Vicar of the Cathedral of Saint Matthew. Effective date September 1, 2019. The letter stated he will be with us for one year.
Thank you for your online donations. We have a link to sign for online giving here. St. Matthew is receiving several anonymous donations, please make sure this is your intent! We do record online donations. Thank you! If you have any questions, Please call the Cathedral office at 289-5539.

Have you heard about the SGO (Scholarship Granting Organization)? It is a great way to help our diocesan schools with financial aid to qualifying families and it provides a tax credit to the donor! Tax credits include a 50% state tax rebate and 25% federal deduction off the remaining amount of the donation.
Just a few housekeeping items. Just a reminder that the church is open from 6 am until 6 pm every day except Sunday when we lock all the doors after the 11am Mass. The north doors are open all day (Monday thru Saturday) for those who wish to come in and make a visit. Just one thing will change as we have had some vandalism in the restrooms during the weekdays. Consequently, we will lock them in the morning after confessions at 8 a.m. and unlock them for Mass in the afternoons. Please do not send small children unattended to the restroom during Mass. After the Mass we have found the sinks stuffed with paper and the water left on or rolls of toilet paper undone and all over the floors. It is great to see all the children in Church on the weekends, however respect for the church building is important.
