There are lots of opportunities to get involved with the ministry teams at Saint Matthew. Consider one of these!

Building & Property Maintenance

Liturgy, Environment, Music

Our quality assurance team
We at Saint Matthew highly value Mass that is celebrated in accordance with the highest quality standards and in accordance with the correct liturgical methods. This is, essentially, the QA Department for worship. These folks assure the liturgies and celebrations are done right and that the church and vestments are properly prepared for seasonal changes of the church (especially during Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter). If you are a perfectionist and you like things done right, welcome to your world!

Meetings:
1st Sunday monthly @ 9:30 AM
