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.

Books Available for Marian Consecration

Throughout our diocese from July 13-August 15, at the request of Bishop Rhoades, we will be invited to undertake a renewed Marian Consecration. Our diocese is under the patronage of Mary, the Immaculate Conception. St. Matts will be making available to those interested Fr. Michael Gaitley’s 33 Days to Morning Glory, a do-it-yourself (or in small groups) preparation for Marian Consecration. This act of re-entrustment to Our Lady’s intercession and patronage will be done on August 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin. More information forth coming!
