About the Church of St. Matthew
Since 1886, St. Matthew’s has been known as the Good Samaritan on the West Side. We invite you to learn about our ministries and join us as we fulfill our mission to be a visible expression of God’s love in the world.
St. Matthew's is a visible expression of God's love as we serve the needs of our community and give praise and thanks to our Creator.
In 2012, St. Matthew's joined with the parishes of Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. John Vianney, and St. Michael to create a new pre-K through 8th grade school. Community of Saints Regional Catholic School is located in West St. Paul at 335 Hurley Avenue East. Read more...
