I'm New to St. Matthew's, Surrey. Where Do I Start?

Welcome to our parish community! We’re so glad you’ve decided to join us. If you haven’t already, say hi to our parish priest, Father Tran or our assistant pastor Father Lucio. They would love to meet you.

Doors are usually open early before Mass starts, and coffee is also available after so feel free to come up to any of our volunteers and introduce yourself. We have various ministries available in the parish so please don’t hesitate to ask any of our volunteers about ways to get connected.

Here at St. Matthew's we want to love God, to love one another, and to make the name of Jesus known.

A Christ centred community focused on growing in holiness together.

Mass: What to Expect

If you have never been to Mass before, or if you haven’t gone in a long time, we are excited to have you join us as we celebrate and worship together. We understand that it may feel foreign at first, and that some parts might seem confusing. The last thing we would want is for you to feel unwelcome during the service, so we have created a little guide for you to help you understand the liturgy a little better.

A Letter from Father Tran

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

On behalf of St. Matthew’s Parish, I would like to welcome everyone to this great family of faith! As members of one family, I invite all to feel at home and get yourselves involved in the life of the parish so that you can truly enjoy the love of God being realized in our united community. Everyone of us is blessed with the gifts of time, talent, and treasure. These are entrusted to us to use ultimately for the glory of God and the benefit of all, including ourselves. The question is how are we to use our time, talent and treasure properly?

First, we need to acknowledge that these gifts are from God. Second, we must show our gratitude for them. And third, we should use them wisely by sharing them for the betterment of all, and most of all, for the glory of God. We all have the responsibility to contribute to the building of our parish community by participating in whatever way we can; be it our time by being present for the different activities and events in the parish; or our talent by doing what is asked of us; or our treasure by offering what we can afford.

I trust that by being involved in different ways in the life of our parish, you will find the fullness of joy and peace in this faith community. Let us therefore, use our gifts of time, talent, and treasure to serve and glorify God and build the Kingdom of God in our parish of St. Matthew’s.
