Creation Matters Meetings
Time: Alternate Tuesdays 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM
The focus of St. Matthew’s Creation Matters group is ‘caring for God’s creation.’ We are stewards of God’s world and can show our love for God and others by caring for our planet. The group meets on a regular basis via Zoom to:

This year we are using Restoring God’s Earth: A Year of Personal Action to guide us and focus our activities in the parish. See what’s happening on our bulletin board at the back of the church.
Time: Wednesday, 11 AM – 12 PM
Hybrid in-person and Zoom on the following Wednesdays:
The in-person meditation sessions are held in the church near the prayer candle in the west transept.
The meditation group is part of the worldwide organization called World Community for Christian Meditation. We open with a brief recorded talk by founder Fr. John Main, Director Fr. Laurence Freeman or by another teacher. After the talk, the group meditates in silence for 20-25 minutes, generally using a prayer word or phrase. We then close with a simple prayer. The group is a wonderful way to support a daily practice or just take time to sit in openness to God's presence.
Time: Sundays from 9-10am in the alcove
Conversations is a 50 minute discussion group based on Bible readings and topics related to faith. Using biblical texts, poems, the free exchange of ideas and perceptions, we seek to reflect on our journey as followers of Jesus in our contemporary world.
Please join us for this well-attended fellowship offering! All are welcome, and no pre-registration is required.
