Great news! Archbishop Pérez has announced that parishes of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will be able to resume public Masses the weekend of June 6 and 7. We at St. Matthews look forward to welcoming you back! Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus as we make our way back to the in person celebration of the Mass.
While our county remains in the Yellow Phase of statewide reopening, all of us need to do our part to make sure that our return to Mass is a peaceful and safe experience for all. Please take the time to read the instructions below. We ask everyone to follow these guidelines when attending Mass during this period:
BEFORE COMING TO MASS
ENTERING THE CHURCH
RECEPTION OF HOLY COMMUNION
EXITING THE CHURCH
OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
St. Matthews will follow the guidelines from the CDC for sanitation as we resume public Masses.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation(Penance) will be celebrated to the left of the Blessed Mother altar up front in church. There is a light above the door marking the entrance. Due to the virus there will be no face to face Confession Saturday evenings. While awaiting for your confession to be heard social distancing is to be respected.
