HISTORICAL NOTE

St. Matthew's Mission was organized in 1925 to aid Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in serving the growing area of south Lincoln. It has always occupied a church building at 24th and Sewell Streets. In January of 1934 it gained the status of an independent parish. In 1939 a parish house was dedicated, and in 1956 an educational building was constructed.
