Our Faith: Ever Ancient and Ever New
Saint Matthew Assyrian-Chaldean Catholic Church is located in Ceres, CA. We are Church dedicated to the mission of God as commanded to make the Gospel alive in our Church, Community, and Families.
“The Church is born primarily of Christ’s total self-giving for our salvation, anticipated in the institution of the Eucharist and fulfilled on the cross. “The origin and growth of the Church are symbolized by the blood and water which flowed from the open side of the crucified Jesus.” “For it was from the side of Christ as he slept the sleep of death upon the cross that there came forth the ‘wondrous sacrament of the whole Church.'” As Eve was formed from the sleeping Adam’s side, so the Church was born from the pierced heart of Christ hanging dead on the cross.” – (CCC 766)
Virtues are formed by prayer.
Our hearts were made for you, Lord,
and they are restless until they rest in you.
God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
