St. Matthew's Welcomes You!

For almost 150 years, St. Matthew's has been a beacon at the center of San Mateo. Each Sunday we gather for worship imbued with beauty, inspiration and grace. On weekdays our Day School fills the campus with energy and vitality. We are a church rooted and nourished by a rich tradition, one that values diversity and engages the challenges and complexities of the modern world.

Come and visit our church, school and grounds and encounter the people who make our church a vibrant community of faith. We hope that your visit will be rewarded by discovering a place of welcome, beauty, joy and prayer.

Welcome to St. Matthew's as our community celebrates the longest stretch of the church year known as the Season after Pentecost,or Ordinary Time. The color green marks our worship as we contemplate and embrace the teachings and life offered to us by Jesus. One observer has described this season as "the time in which we actually live: the period between Pentecost, the giving of the Holy Spirit, and the Second Coming of Christ." It is the season where together we venture to live out our faith and discover where God's Kingdom may be emerging in our midst.
