We are excited to present our holiday service schedule for Christmas and New Year’s. Each service is distinctive. Join us for one or more of these joyous festive services!
All during Advent St. Nick will pop up around the Episcopal Church of St. Matthew! Learn fun facts about our glorious church building and community throughout Advent until Christmas day.
St. Nicholas was the Bishop of Myra in the 4th century, beloved as the patron and protector of seafarers, sailors, brides & grooms, bakers, travelers, and especially children. In his life and ministry, he was an advocate for the poor, expressed generosity to those in need, and had many legendary stories of faith attributed to his great love for Jesus Christ and people.

Advents starts this Sunday, December 2nd and this Advent we welcome back Patrick O’Halloran to assist us in developing a practice of contemplative prayer and living. Over the span of three sessions, participants will be invited to step out of the world of instant communication, multi-tasking, and increasingly complex personal issues to recharge their spiritual batteries. Quiet, inner peace and a renewed zest for life are the goals for taking time to tend to our spirit and soul.
We will gather in the Conference Room in St. Matthew’s Hall on three consecutive Sundays, December 2, 9 and 16 at 9:10 am. You may attend any or all three sessions. Invite a friend!
We have just celebrated the one-year anniversary of the Laundry Love ministry at St. Matthew’s. In partnership with Samaritan House, we offer this ministry on the second Tuesday of each month from 6-9pm to facilitate clean laundry for our neighbors in need at the Clothesline Laundromat in San Mateo. Volunteers are grouped into two shifts. It is a rewarding experience for everyone involved. We are always looking for more volunteers. Please use the contact form below if you would like to learn more or join a shift.
Our all-parish Thanksgiving dinner is Friday, November 2nd at 6:30pm in the Julia Beylard Hall. Everyone is welcome!
