#infaithwego is a new initiative! We are hoping to publish a monthly-ish newsletter that speaks to what we have been up as a Vestry, what is up and coming as a parish, host a stewardship corner so you can see where your contributions go each month, have a family-friendly fun corner and more! We will be sure to post the newsletter here each month when it rolls out, but should you wish to receive it by email, please send us a note and let us know and we will add you to our email distribution list. Please note, this email distribution list will be used for the purposes of parish communication only and will not be advertised or used for communication outside of the life of St. Matthews. 

Welcome Rev. Rebecca Harris!
St. Matthew's Anglican Parish is beyond elated to welcome aboard the Reverend Rebecca Harris, incoming at 1/4 time ministry starting May 1, 2024! Rev. Rebecca had joined us back in Spring of 2023 as an Honorary Assistant and has become an invaluable resource, leader, and companion on our journeys of faith here at St. Matthew's. We are absolutely ecstatic that she
willingly accepted the offer to be a more formal part of our ministry team. Rev Rebecca can be found at the church on Sundays (primarily) but also takes a service and hospitality ministry at the Youville Home in St. Albert. Please join us in welcoming her aboard when you next see her!
Women's Ministry
We have a vibrant and dedicated group of women who are passionate about various aspects of being "Sisters in faith"; to keep up to date on our events, please see the "Women's Ministry" tab under the "Ministry" tab above. You can also click here to reach that page directly. Should you wish to be included on the email chain of events that are upcoming, please click here to let us know and drop us your email!   
General Information
We know, throughout scripture, that there are various invitations. Jesus was invited to heal and preach; the disciples were invited to join Jesus as he traveled through the countries to spread the Good News, Philip even told Nathanael, "Come and See!" (Jn 1:46). While we work to keep our website up to date with all the exciting things happening in St. Matthews, we would invite you to come and see for yourself how we work to further God's kingdom in the community of St. Albert! We would love nothing more than to welcome you on a Sunday or one of our events throughout the year.  
Worship Schedule:  We usually have two services of Holy Communion each week; we worship on Sundays at 10 am. Most of our services are from the Book of Alternative Services. In September, we will return to the addition of an 8am service. The 8am service is a said Eucharist and typically runs about 45 minutes in duration. Our 10am service would normally have Sunday school, a children's talk, and music (a mix of choral and contemporary each week). The 10am service usually runs about an hour and 15 minutes in duration and is followed by a time of coffee, tea, and fellowship. 
We have a Rector, Archdeacon Lee Bezanson as well as an Honorary Assistant, Reverend Rebecca Harris; worship ministry is shared between the two of these fine individuals. 
We would encourage you to click here to see what is up and coming within our parish community! As always, you are invited to join in - whether you have attended St. Matthew's your entire life or have found our presence online and wish to come and see what we are about.
