Grand Knight's Welcome
The Knights of Saint Matthew Parish invite all practicing Catholic men over the age of 18 to join our council and help us to achieve our goals and support our efforts to provide maximum support to our parish community.

We meet the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Conference Room in the lower level of St. Matthew the Evangelist Church. We also have a Zoom option. I hope you will consider joining our team!
