Bible Study at Saint Matthew

Starting later this month, we'll explore what God is communicating to us about trust in a Bible study format. Due to COVID, this study will encompass a combination of remote and in-person sessions and be limited to small groups. If you're interested, please fill out this brief survey linked below.

Help Us Spread the Gospel Livestream

Saint Matthew is committed to keeping you connected. Each week we provide online streaming of our Liturgies with hundreds of at-home views. To sustain this important outreach we need your support. If you would like to be part of the A/V streaming team and are comfortable with computers, we are seeking additional members to join this ministry. Training will be provided and scheduling will accommodate your availability. To join the A/V streaming team or for more information, please contact Joel Bolen at or 615-550-5108.

Virtual Prayer For the Unborn

The Respect for Life Ministry at Saint Matthew invites you to join a virtual fixed Hour of Prayer for the Unborn on Friday, January 29, at noon (midday option) or at 6 p.m. (evening option). We will pray the sorrowful mysteries and spend the remainder of the hour in silent prayer for the sanctity of life.
You can join EWTN's children's online prayer session of the sorrowful mysteries at the link below.
