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.
