At the turn of the twentieth century, Bishop Edward P. Allen was approached by three gentlemen of his “Down the Bay” district: Messrs. McQuillen, Lee and O’Donnell, to consider the formation of a new parish. Bishop Allen chose Father John Dunne, a New Yorker who volunteered for the Mobile Diocese to be the first pastor of St. Matthew’s Church.
Dear Friends in Christ,
I would like to welcome you to our Parish and our family of faith. The word "Catholic" literally means "universal". Our parish really is a microcosm of Mobile society, and as such, all are welcome. We are the universal Body of Christ. So, please feel at home here and know that you are as much a part of our community as those who founded it back in 1904.
May God bless you today and always.
Rev. Joseph M. Bolling
Our Christian vocation is a call to be a disciple of Jesus. Stewardship is big part of that calling. Christians are called to be good stewards of the personal vocations they receive.
