Feeling Blessed

We have so much to be thankful for at St. Matthew.

  • Our church has been dedicated, and we are able to celebrate the Sacrament of the Eucharist together as a community.
  • We have completed the first Trimester of school-in person!
  • We got to honor our Veteran's.
  • Our students are working so hard and receiving recognition for their work.
  • Our families continue to show understanding, support, and generosity every day to help us serve our mission.

Thank you for all your prayers and support during these difficult times. They mean the world to us!

Cognia Accreditation review

Every 5 years, St. Matthew has it's External Review Team visit to help us with our Continuous Improvement process. The review team conducted the review via Zoom on Sept. 30 through Oct. 2.

Several St. Matthew stakeholders were involved with the process including students, parents, parishioners, teachers, staff, and leadership.

We are excited to share the official report for all stakeholders to view. Click here for a summary of our results (which also for a link to the full report for anyone interested in reading the full report).

Thank you to all who were part of the process, and to all of you for your support and involvement in continuing to make St. Matthew the amazing place it is!

Dedication mass

First School Mass

Students and teachers celebrated mass for the first time in the church on Nov. 11. For many years, our school and parish family have waited for that moment. Not only were we celebrating our first mass in the church, we were also celebrating the first mass in person as a school, AND we celebrated Veteran's Day! It was a joyous day!
