St. Matthew’s Cathedral uses these words to describe itself: “In Christ, we grow in faith, respond through action, and embrace all people.”
St. Matthew’s Cathedral is a vibrant worshiping community significantly involved in the life of Laramie. Emanating from the spiritual commitment of its members, it strives to live out its religious life in the service of others. We help to cloth the unclothed through our clothing cottage, feed the hungry through hosting the Soup Kitchen, and give warmth and comfort through our “Prayers and Squares” quilts. Resources are found for those in financial need, and low-income women and girls are provided free feminine hygiene products through our period project.
If you seek join in a dynamic worship experience or to help the community, please drop by St. Matthew’s as we seek to follow the way of Christ.
The cathedral was built between 1892 to 1896 of native sandstone that was quarried nine miles northeast of Laramie. The cross at the top of the spire is 118 feet (36 m) feet above the ground and 7,276 feet (2,218 m) feet above sea level, which makes St. Matthew's the highest cathedral in the United States.
