Welcome to St. Matthew Cathedral

St. Matthew Cathedral Parish is a Roman Catholic church in South Bend, Indiana serving as the co-cathedral for the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend under Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades.  We are rooted in worship of the Father, through the Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit, through honoring the Eucharist in Holy Mass.  As we open our hearts to growth in holiness we in turn reach out in charitable service to the poor.


May Mercy Challenge – Comforting the Sorrowful

This month, we’re challenging ourselves to reach out to someone who is going through a hard time to offer a sympathetic ear or a word of encouragement. One way to do this is by supporting the new St. Matthew Bereavement Ministry, which accompanies bereaved families through cards and prayers in the year after losing a loved one. Support by joining the ministry (email Mary Andrews - maryeandrews44@nullgmail.com) or donating blank sympathy cards to the ministry. Cards can be placed in the basket by the doors of the church.
