For this year’s Advent season, St. Matt’s #StNickonaBrick campaign will highlight the people that make our parish a vibrant community of faith.
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).
Our all-parish Thanksgiving dinner is Friday, November 1st at 6:00pm in the Julia Beylard Hall. Everyone is welcome!
Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy will be provided by the League for Service. Please bring your favorite side dish to serve 10 and a beverage. For planning purposes, we ask that you RSVP by calling the church office at 650-342-1481.
The parish gathered on a balmy Saturday, October 5th, 2019 for the annual gala fundraiser. With the theme of Aloha Spirit, attendees came out in colorful Hawaiian attire and a festive feeling was in the air.
