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.

St. Matthew Small Groups meet regularly in order to grow in faith and friendship. Most meetings take place in parishioners’ homes and include time for socializing, study, discussion, and prayer.

November Mercy Challenge – Pray for the Living and the Dead

November Mercy Challenge: Praying for the Living and the Dead
The Christian life is a life of mercy. This month, we remember our prayers for others are acts of mercy. In particular, let us pray for the holy souls in Purgatory. One way to do this is with the prayer of St. Gertrude the Great:
Eternal Father I offer you the most precious blood of your divine son Jesus in union with the masses said throughout the world today for all the holy souls in purgatory for sinners everywhere sinners in the universal church those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

Hearts on Fire Bible Study Meets Sunday Mornings

“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 Elizabeth Ann Seton Room (formerly the music room) of the school and delve into the Mass readings of the day.  All are welcome, and refreshments are provided.

Questions? Contact faith@nullstmatthewcathedral.com. We hope to see you there!
