Welcome to St. Matthew's Cathedral
The Episcopal Book of Common Prayer says that the mission of the Church is to reconcile all people to God and one another through Christ.
This is also the mission of the Cathedral Church of St. Matthew. All aspects of the Cathedral’s life seek to make the love and compassion of Jesus Christ known to all and to seek reconciliation among all people.
The three words that hold us together are Christ + Community + Compassion. These express our core values. We want to make Christ known to all. We also want to live as a community of compassion to one another and to the world around us, specifically to the East Dallas community.
While we have services in English and Spanish, we strive to be one congregation of diverse people. We believe there is room for all people in God’s family and we welcome all to our community.
As the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Dallas, we are also the “Bishop’s Church.” St Matthew’s is the oldest Episcopal Congregation in North Texas, and was the first church during the formation of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. Bishop Garrett named St. Matthew’s as his Cathedral in 1875 and we continue to be one of the leading congregations of this vital and healthy diocesan community. We host many diocesan events, and we offer the Stanton Center for Ministry Formation. This intensive center for study prepares Diocesan Deacons for ordination, and provides for in depth theological education for lay leadership of the Diocese.
The Cathedral Church contains some of the most beautiful stained glass and art work of any Texas churches. While we believe the Cathedral itself is a beautiful and holy place, we also strive to be an alive Christian Community of Sacrament and Word in the Catholic expression of the Episcopal Church. Join us for worship, fellowship, and service.
