One Sunday Service in July and August

Starting in July we will move to one service on Sundays at 9:00 am. We will use Rite I (traditional language) during July and Rite II (contemporary language) during August. As always, nursery care is available for little ones, and a summer program for kids — Summer Wonder — will begin at 8:45 am through the first half of church for children in grades K-6. We’ll resume our two-service schedule in September.

Update on the Church Building

Sometime during the night of July 7th our beloved church was vandalized by persons unknown. Rocks were thrown through four of our historic stained glass windows, an urn was smashed and the exterior of the building was scratched in several places. Shock has quickly given way to action and we are in the process of beginning repairs and working with the police in this ongoing investigation. The outpouring of prayers and offerings has been truly overwhelming and a testament to the special place that the Episcopal Church of St. Matthew has in our community. We are renewed in our strength as a parish, uplifted by the support of our friends and neighbors from all faith traditions, and growing all the time in our commitment to be a beautiful beacon of God’s love in the center of San Mateo.
