Saint Mathew's Catholic Church


All Masses at the Cathedral and St Matthews Parish are cancelled tomorrow 28th February 2021 due to our move to COVID-19 Level 2 at 6am Sunday morning.

Bishop Steve has written this evening regarding our move into Level 2 tomorrow: “In the light of the circumstances, I give a dispensation from attendance at Sunday Mass this weekend.” In other words, there is no obligation to attend Mass tomorrow.

Remember also that the 11am Mass will be live-streamed:

We are hosting an Alpha Course

At Saint Matthew's, Silverdale, Hamilton we live in accord with the will of the Father, reflecting the life of Jesus Christ and are led and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We celebrate the Eucharist as the center, source and summit of our Catholic faith.

We are a community forming an oasis of prayer, reflecting the love of Jesus and eager to share the source of our joy and hope.

Our congregation averages 180 at a Sunday Mass with people from Asia, Africa, Europe, America, India, the Pacific as well as New Zealand.
