The Art, Architecture, Signs and Symbols of St. Matthew's

Like our people, St. Matthew's Church is complex, beautiful, and very Catholic. Diverse like its parishioners, its architecture is a hybrid of French and English Gothic with Romanesque flourishes.

Our stained glass windows, statues, icons, Stations of the Cross serve first and foremost as pedagogical tools: telling our history and teaching us our Catechism.

Here, for example, are several of the Bible stories depicted in the windows: Adam and Eve being banished from the Garden of Eden; Abraham and his son Isaac; the Joyful and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary, like the Nativity scene in Bethlehem.
