For over 150 years, St. Matthew’s has been a beacon at the center of San Mateo – an Episcopal Church and a K-8 Day School. While our beautiful Church, school and grounds are temporarily closed—it is my hope that you will have to opportunity to explore our website and learn more about our community.
We are a Church rooted and nourished by a rich Episcopal tradition. One that values the comfort of liturgy, preaching excellence, congregational diversity all while working through the challenges and complexities of the modern world. Today we face the health and economic challenges of the Covid-19 virus while working to offer virtual ways to provide connection and a sense of community.
Our Sunday services are live streamed at 10:00 am PT from The Episcopal Church of St. Matthew Facebook Live webpage. You will also find a wealth of content posted to our website including videos of: Children’s Chapel Storytime, weekday Morning Prayer services, and organ and bell tower music.
We want to meet you where you are in your spiritual journey and hope that your online visit with us will be rewarded by discovering a place of welcome, beauty, joy and prayer.
