A Faith Lived: St. Matthew Catholic Church Ministries

*Please note, due to the pandemic, most ministries are currently not meeting. We are in need of Sacristans, Eucharistic Ministers and Greeters. Please reach out to our main office, 704-543-7677 if you are interested. Thank you and God bless!

St. Matthew is an engaged parish, connected in Christ and moved by the Holy Spirit. We believe in a living faith and express that through participation in more than 100 ministries that enhance the spiritual, social and service aspects of our lives. Please visit each ministry’s page for details on what they are all about and how to get involved!
