Virtual Chapel

Dear Friends,

Welcome to St. Matthew Catholic Secondary School. We are located in Cornwall Ontario. Our school is a unique place, one that is inclusive and welcoming. The staff at our school is committed to Catholic Education, ensuring that Catholic values permeate their teaching and their daily interactions with students.

I, your school Chaplaincy Leader, do my best to promote these same values and help foster a non-judgmental, inclusive and welcoming environment in our school community. I am present in the school on Wednesdays to build relationships with students, to provide meaningful opportunities of reflection and prayer, and to offer care.

This year our Board’s theme has changed. Our new focus is “I belong here, together we are God’s good news.”  As a school, we wish to continue building a non-judgmental, inclusive and welcoming environment throughout St. Mathew. Our hope is that all staff, students, and visitors feel like “[they] belong here.” We continue to be dedicated to offering meaningful experiences of prayer and reflection so that we grow to recognize the immense love of our God.  “Together” we will practice being “good news” by serving each other both inside and outside of our school community. 

As we journey through this new school year, may we be filled with a new enthusiasm and positive outlook. May the inspiration of God’s Spirit continue to help us as we navigate safely these challenging times.   

I hope that this online resource helps us feel more connected to each other, and to our faith.

May Jesus our Teacher bless us as we strive to learn and grow in these challenging times.
