Don’t miss any Advent and Christmas activities at St. Matthew’s this month with the December Tau Cross. A special Lessons & Carols Sunday Service will be on December 7th and there are a number of holiday services for your participation.
We welcome everyone, especially visitors to the Bay Area, to come to St. Matthew’s as we gather for a Eucharist service at 10:00 am on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28, 2019. This service provides an opportunity, with music and prayer, to gather, reflect and give thanks for what might be close to one’s heart on this special holiday. St. Matthew’s is one of the few parishes that offer a Thanksgiving eucharist in our area.
Thanksgiving Day is listed among the major feasts in the Episcopal Church calendar. It is one of two national holidays that are also part of our church list of Holy Days marked to be observed throughout the year (the other is Independence Day).
The November 2019 Tau Cross is now available! Read about upcoming events including the All Parish Thanksgiving, Book Club meeting and the school’s Holiday House!
