The vision for the St. Matthew Parish Catholic Men’s Conference team is to be the Catholic Men’s Ministry for the St. Matthew Parish community. We are blessed with a great culture and an ethnic diversity that represents a wide range of social and economic backgrounds. We were baptized into the church to be the light and salt of the world that brings hope. As commissioned by Jesus Christ, we are to go out into the world and bear fruit in his name and to have life in abundance. Our vision is inspired by Pope Francis to be the missionaries of the new evangelization and mercy. We envision the St. Matthew Parish community to be characterized by spiritual vitality and growth. It is our hope that the Catholic Men’s Conference will give the men of St. Matthew the spiritual growth and enrichment they need for their individual life journey.
