Dear Friends and Parishioners of Cathedral of Saint Matthew Parish,

There is a terrific way to get a large tax break and support our parish and school through donations to our diocesan SGO (“Scholarship Granting Organization”). The SGO of Northeast Indiana ( supports Saint Matthew School.

Please join us at the 9 am liturgy during the Holy Season of Advent.

A newly formed schola will sing simple Latin Mass parts, Entrance and Communion Antiphons, and an Advent Marian Antiphon.

Matthew, in his story of Jesus’ birth, reflects great anticipation for the coming of Jesus, the “son of David, son of Abraham.” Join us for an Advent Bible study as we unpack the infancy narrative of Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel (Matthew 1-2) and discover Matthew’s unique features of the newborn Jesus in light of his Old Testament forebearers.

Dates: Wednesday, December 11, 18, 2019

St. Matthew Cathedral Parish will again sponsor a giving tree to benefit the Crib Club of the Women’s Care Center (WCC). The tree will be set up from December 1 to December 24 in the Miami Street vestibule. Please join our parish community by picking an ornament from the giving tree and purchasing the item listed for donation to the Crib Club.

During this season of Advent, let us not forget the poor as we go about our Christmas preparation. Our parish food parntry is in need of a little bit of everything. The generosity you have shown is truly appreciated. Especially during this time of year we are in need of monetary donations, to help the poor with emergency aid along with food and toiletries. Anyone interested in helping with this much needed ministry, is always welcome to come to a meeting and see what we are all about. Thank you for your generosity, and God bless!

Man cannot live without love. He remains a being that is incomprehensible for himself, his life is senseless, if love is not revealed to him, if he does not encounter love, if he does not experience it and make it his own, if he does not participate intimately in it. ~ Redeemer of Man ~
