The Angel Gabriel has always been a messenger of love.  His first words, "Be Not Afraid" opened the door of love to a poor unwed mother, the Mother of God.  The mission of the Gabriel Project is to assist women in need - whether rich or poor, single, married, young or older.  We offer resources to support them through the duration of their pregnancy and beyond. To receive help, call the Gabriel Project Helpline at 833.937.4968 or Ginger at 574.286.2413

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.

Tax Credit - The state tax credit makes an SGO contribution especially attractive to donors. In addition to the potential Federal tax deduction for charitable contributions, SGO donations are eligible for a 50% State of Indiana Tax Credit.

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.

Please Note:
The WCC distributes the donations through their Crib Club and uses an incentive program in which pregnant women and parents of young children earn vouchers by attending prenatal appointments, educational classes and participating in other activities that foster good parenting. The vouchers are then used to “buy” Crib Club items.

Please do not wrap the donations since they are not for a specific baby, child or mother.

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 18, 2019
