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.

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!
