ABOUT US

At St. Matthias, we believe that the Christian faith is all about relationships.

The first and most important relationship is between the individual and God. We seek to cultivate and strengthen this first sort of relationship by seeking Christ where he has promised to be. We find him present in his Word and in his Sacraments.
