Message from Church Council President


On behalf of Church Council of St. Matthew Catholic Church for Assyrians and Chaldeans; I am pleased to extend my warmest greetings welcoming all our website readers. Through our continuous endeavor to honor and live up the missionary spirit of our Holy Catholic faith, we are called to live a life worthy of Christ's Gospel. St. Matthew Church set off publishing its first website; the extension of our mission to take God's Word far and beyond.

Our Mission
Our Mission is to celebrate our Catholic Tradition, whereby we are to be Christians to the fullest, living the essence of our unity with God through the Grace Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior bestows upon us in light of His Gospel.

Our Website
Our website essentially is a collage of memories from the past, joys and challenges of present, and the enduring dreams and hopes for the future. As you explore this site, it is our hope that you will perceive our heartfelt invitation for you to come. Through the announcements, photos, and activities we publish, we are humbly introducing ourselves to you.

Through God's Grace, and by the power of the Holy Spirit; St. Matthew Church keeps the doors open to all who seek God in light of His Truth, hence, whether you are Catholic, have been a member of St. Matthew Church, or still searching, please know that you are welcome. Join us in faith, in our unity with God, and celebrate the Holy Sacraments with us.

Finally, we extend our sincere thanks to our website management staff, graphic designers, coordinators, and planners who are hard at work to make this website a venue where you can see God's Work in people just like you and I, who share the passion and the true love for God's Word, and committed to make it accessible to all readers.

Thank you and God Bless you all.
Basil Aboona
