St. Matthew's, being a manifestation of the Body of Christ, is a community that respects the dignity of every human being. We worship, learn, and serve together as we experience the light and love of God in community. Embraced by God's grace, we are joyfully sent forth in service and mission, as we each strive to be examples of Christ in the world.

CT Women supporting Afghan women in their quest to over centuries of oppression.
Guests at St. Matthew's Seniors' luncheon on September 18th will hear from three CT women, one born in Afghanistan, describing their efforts to bring education to Afghan women and girls as they fight against incredible obstacles to make their voices heard.  Connie Tate, a World YWCA representative to the UN, Elizabeth Titus, a professional writer working with the Afghan Women's Writing Project and the SOLA school in Afghanistan, and Shekaiba Bennett, will be the speakers.
To reserve please call Kristi, Church Office 203.762.7400.

It's time to set up new Foyer groups for 2014-2015

Foyer groups are a fun and easy way for parishioners to gather together on a regular but informal basis for purely social reasons-to enjoy one another's company, to strengthen bonds of community, to meet new members of St. Matthew's and to get to know other people who share a common interest in grace but with whom we might not otherwise interact.  There is no agenda or plan just a casual fellowship and a refreshing meal.  
For more information check out the Parish Life page. 
 To sign up contact Char Griffin at or 203.210.7822

Wine Excuses!  We need wine corks!!!
You may not need many excuses to drink wine but, just in case, we would like to invite you to contribute to our cause.  During the last several weeks of September, the Youth United Group of Habitat for Humanity will be collecting wine corks for use in their fall craft.  Look for the display in the Church Narthex.  Questions, contact Margie Holcombe @
