Serving the Ville Community since 1893 ▪ A Jesuit Parish since 1959
Welcome to St. Matthew the Apostle Catholic Church!
Archbishop Carlson has been following the updates and guidance from local and state government and health officials. Because of his pastoral care of people, and to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, he mandates the following: "I suspend all public Masses in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, beginning with Masses following this communication today, March 16, 2020. All public celebrations of the liturgy, as well as Liturgy of the Hours, Stations of the Cross, and all other group services, Bible Studies, and activities are to cease beginning immediately. The dispensation I have offered for all Catholics in our archdiocese from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass is now extended through April 5. At this time, all churches are to remain open to individuals for personal prayer, devotions and confessions. Caring for both our physical and spiritual health go hand-in-hand, and the health, safety and overall well-being of the people of the archdioceses is my first priority.
