Grace to you and peace!

Welcome to the website of the parish family of St. Matthew!  It is good to have you visit.  St. Matthew’s church serves the communities of Tyrone, Fairburn, Palmetto, Union City and surrounding area. We seek to serve the Lord in our neighbor by sowing the seed of his word, shining the light of his love and living out the Gospel in word and deed. 

We hope you find this website informative and helpful. Join us in prayer.  Participate in our ministries.  Come and live out the Christian life with us!  If there are ways that we may walk with you on this journey of faith, please let us know.  May the Lord bless you abundantly!

October is Respect Life Month

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
and never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our Nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

THANK YOU parish family for listening and responding to the plea for sponsors for children in need around the world.

Because of you, at least 19 children, families and elderly, and maybe some more, have hope for their future. Each of them is worth the whole world, so congratulations on saving the world! St Matthews is truly testimony to the love, compassion and charity of the Catholic faith.
