Your neighbours at St. Matthias welcome you!

Welcome from your neighbours at St. Matthias in Fairfield … Rockland … Gonzales! We are a church at the crossroads of three neighbourhoods but most importantly, we open our arms and our hearts to you, no matter where you live.We’re so glad you “clicked” on us! We’d love to greet you in person, as well. Feel free to join us at any of our special events or at a worship service.

Who is this community of St. Matthias? The answer is both simple and complex: we’re a group of folks (of all ages) who come together to “practice the presence of God.” We welcome every voice and every question. Whoever you are or wherever you may be on your journey of faith, we welcome you.

Maybe you have some specific questions we could answer? If so, drop us an email or give us a phone call. Take a look at the contact points at the bottom of this page: each of us is keen to hear from you.

Our priest (rector, pastor, minister) is Meagan Crosby-Shearer. She’d be delighted to hear from you! (Yes, that’s also Meagan in the photo above, in a somewhat more formal setting!)

Do you wonder what we mean by “worship” at St. Matthias? Generally, we celebrate our faith with the Lord’s Supper (Eucharist, Communion). The service includes readings from the Christian scriptures, hymns and anthems, prayer and preaching. And, please stick around and join us for coffee or tea and a personal welcome.


We try to live our faith in service. Have you ideas to share with us? Feedback on your experience with us? Click on any of the contact buttons and give us your ideas! We’d love to hear from you. Keep up with us on our News and Events page. Or, find us (and “like us”) on our Facebook page, filled with photos from our activities.

Thanks again for your visit! Come see us soon!
