Renew My Church Updates

As you are aware by now, the final decision for our Lincoln Square Grouping has been made. St. Matthias Church will merge with Queen of Angels, effective July 1, 2020, with Queen of Angels being the parish church. A new pastor will be named in the coming months who will work with both parishes to transition to our new parish model. St. Matthias School will continue its academic and spiritual excellence under the direction of Principal Katie Carden and the school staff as an Archdiocesan School. Please continue your prayers and support for our Church and School. The community of St. Matthias has always been a very strong one and that will continue as we move forward together. As more information is shared with us, we will of course share that with you as well.

Please join us for a TOWN HALL MEETING on Tuesday, December 10th at 7pm in the Church. Fr. Jason Malave and other leadership from the Archdiocese will be with us to share more information about the decision that was handed down to us from the Cardinal in the RMC process. We will also have the chance to ask questions regarding how this decision will affect the future of St. Matthias Church and School.
