This week's Adult Forum

We welcome to St. Matthew’s Cathedral Benedictine Brother Dowd this coming Sunday – Oct 16. He will speak at the Adult Forum at 9:00 am and preach at the 10:00 service. Please come meet him and hear what he has to share with us about monasticism and meditation.

We are collecting the names of your beloved saints to remember on All Saints Sunday – Nov 6. Sign-up sheets will be included in the Sunday bulletins, or you may come by the office to leave the names of those you wish remembered.

Starting the 13th of October, the second Thursday of every month, we will be having POTLUCKS for ALL COMERS. These potlucks will be held at the Canterbury House (110 S. 9th Street) beginning at 5:45 pm. Bring your favorite potluck dish and your community spirit, as we gather to offer radical hospitality as we get to know one another better. Coffee, tea, and water will be provided. On some of these dates, we will be offering brief talks on saints or the Christian calendar. Don't forget that parking can be challenging around Canterbury; communicate with each other ahead of time if you need a ride or are willing to caravan or offer rides. And if you are passionate about building community around good food as part of a "Potluck Hospitality Committee," please contact April French at or 303-249-3752.

I belong at St. Matthew's - Poetry Project Update

In September members shared the poetic results of their reflections about belonging at St. Matthew's. Some common images emerged: the bells, stained glass, organ, hymns, and particularseasonal liturgies, as well as appreciation for the diversity of the congregation and the call to share our faith with others. We are sharing these poems at the start of our Sunday bulletins and plans are to put them into a booklet. If you would like to include your poem, please send it to Marilyn Engstrom at

Praying for others and having prayers said for you is very powerful. Often times we want to ask folks to pray for us or for others and are not sure how to do that. If you or someone you know is in need of prayer, please email or call the office and they will be included in the weekly update. We will leave eacherson on for one month unless otherwise told. It is very important that you ask permission of those you want included as not everyone wants their needs made public. If you or someone else would like prayers but do not want to be included in this update, please also let us know and we will have our prayer team pray in confidence. Please pray for: Sonny, Lacy, Mary Kari, Adam, Bobbi, Chuck, Joan, Sunny, Mary, Katherine, Ava&baby, Lu, Andrew and Zeroh.  If you would like continued prayer for a person mentioned on this list, please let the office administrator know by calling (307) 742-6608 or emailing
