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.


Advent Giving – Women’s Care Center and St. Vincent de Paul

Help prepare for the coming of Christ by serving those in need in our community this Christmas.

St. Vincent de Paul can provide the name of a family that needs your help with food for Christmas dinner and toys for children. Please call Angela Leo at 234-6000 for more details.

We also are sponsoring a Women’s Care Center Advent Giving Tree again this year. Please pick an ornament from the tree in the church vestibule in order to help stock the shelves of the Crib Club. Monetary donations are also welcome in the Sunday collection basket.

“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. All are welcome, and refreshments and childcare are provided.
