Each parish seeks to live out its call from Christ to enflesh the Risen Lord in the world. God’s work takes place in a generous spirit of hospitality, love, and mutual concern that extends beyond the church’s doors into a waiting world that is hungry to know the transformative power of the Kingdom of God.

Honoring Our Heritage. . .

St. Matthews Church St. Matthews Church, Stevensville
In 1792, former patriots and their families from the American Revolution moved from Litchfield, Conn., to a wilderness area known as Pike in what was then Ontario County, now Bradford County.

St. Matthew's Episcopal Church was established in 1799 by these faithful settlers, many of them sheep herders and shepherds. The original church building was destroyed by fire in 1814. The current church was completed in 1820 and consecrated in 1824. St. Matthew's ceased to be a full-time church in 1900, and has been preserved as a reminder of our past ever since. Since 1924, St. Paul's Church, Montrose, has exercised care for and stewardship of this historic church.

Looking To The Future. . .

St. Matthews Church Center for Excellence in Music and Worship - St. Luke's Church, Lebanon
Resulting from work done during a recent period of transition, St. Luke's began to identify itself as a Center for Excellence in Music and Worship. Seeking a way forward, the parish established its VISION 20/20 as a way forward for its growth and development. One aspect of this vision engaged a long tradition of liturgical music and a devotion to the worship traditions of the Episcopal Church. The parish hopes not only to develop this element for its own life but also as a resource for other parishes in the region and the diocese.
