The community of St. Matthew the Evangelist shares in your grief as you suffer the loss of a loved one. The prayers and support of the collaborative parishes are with you at this difficult time.

The Church’s prayer in the Rite of Christian Burial focuses our attention on the mystery of the suffering, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the promise that we, too, and your loved one, are called to share in that gift of new and everlasting life. It is a time in which the Lord gives us comfort, healing, and peace.
