Welcome to St. Matthew Cathedral

St. Matthew Cathedral Parish is a welcoming 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.


Join us for the Vatican II Study Series – Sunday mornings at 10:10 a.m.

The parish celebrates fifty years since the Second Vatican Council! Join us for our study series on Sunday mornings between the 9:00 and  11:00 a.m. masses for a presentation on the essential documents of the council and opportunity for Q&A with trained theologians from our parish community. Meetings take place in the Music Room of the school, and childcare is provided in the school gym.

For a list of speakers and topics for each week, see our VaticanIIStudySeriesFlyer. We hope to see you there!
