St. Matthias warmly and genuinely welcomes everyone who comes through our door, including anyone who sees themself in the rainbow banner or the abbreviation LGBTQ2IA+. So, when we say we welcome you "whoever you are," please know that our welcome is without condition or limit.
At St. Matthias we join with all Canadians as we reflect on the complex, often painful, history that is the heritage we share, whether our families have been here since time out of mind, for many generations, or whether we are "brand new" to Canada. Respectfully, we acknowledge the legacy of the residential schools. We listen. We grieve. We honour. We commit to action.
The church is more than buildings and programs. We are the body of Christ present in this world no matter where we are. We are a church without walls. Thank you for your virtual visit! All are welcome here.
