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.

Door-to-Door Outreach to take place in Easter Season

“I want the Church to go out into the streets!” -Pope Francis
At the summons of Pope Francis, we are undertaking a Door-to-Door Outreach this Easter season to all registered parishioners. We’re visiting people’s homes to hear about parishioners’ experiences at St. Matthew and see if there are any needs that we can be meeting better, to offer prayers for each home we visit, and to invite everyone to be an active part of the parish community
Have you been coming to Mass at St. Matthew and haven’t gotten around to registering? Register here.

Lenten Practices at the Cathedral

The Lenten Season, which begins on Ash Wednesday (February 18) and ends with the beginning of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday (April 2), has a two­fold character: to prepare both Catechumens (those to be baptized at the Easter Vigil) and the Faithful to celebrate the Paschal Mystery (the work of salvation wrought by the death and resurrection of Jesus).

To enter into this holy season with us, please see Lent at the Cathedral 2015, with information on events such as:

*Weekly stations of the Cross* *Eucharistic adoration* *Parish-wide almsgiving* * Parish Lenten Mission* *Bible studies and prayer groups* *Holy Week Schedule*

Join us for Hearts on Fire Bible Study – Sunday mornings at 10:10 a.m.

“Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32)

Come join us for the Hearts on Fire Bible Study where we share the words of  the disciples on the road to Emmaus, seeing how Christ speaks to us through the Scriptures and the journeys of our daily lives. We meet Sunday mornings after the 9 a.m. Mass in the music room of the school and delve into the Mass readings of the day. For Lent, we will also reflect on our Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving together. All are welcome, and refreshments and childcare are provided.
