“No one has greater love than this: to lay down one’s life.” -John 15:13
“If you must choose between me and the baby, no hesitation; I choose – and I demand it – the baby. Save her!” –St. Gianna Beretta Molla
St. Matthew is a parish that rejoices in the gift of life and we want to walk with you and celebrate the precious life that is within you. But we also want you to know that you are not alone if this pregnancy is unexpected, scary, or feels burdensome. God has chosen for you to be a parent; have faith that the God who calls also equips. He loves you and is waiting to unfold the beautiful promise that lies hidden in the unexpected: your greatest self, waiting to emerge.
