Please note: All in-person activities and services at Saint Matthew’s are suspended until at least May 4th as we seek to do our part to help contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We ask you to keep in your prayers all who have been affected by this pandemic and those who care for them. To stay in community and support one another during this time, we will continue to livestream a weekly Sunday service at 10:00 a.m. and will be sharing additional resources and services by email, Facebook, and Instagram.

Easter Flowers
For some people, Easter is a season to remember those loved ones that have gone before us or to honor those still with us. To help people achieve that, St. Matthew’s offers the opportunity to donate toward our Easter flowers. Should you wish to make a contribution and/or to designate names of loved ones for special thanksgivings, please contact the church office at 215-646-4092 or email Luray Watkins, parish administrator. Palm Sunday is traditionally the last day to sign up for flower donations.
