Matthew, one of the twelve Apostles, is the author of the first Gospel. This has been the constant tradition of the Church and is confirmed by the Gospel itself. He was the son of Alpheus and was called to be an Apostle while sitting in the tax collectors place at Capernaum. Before his conversion he was a publican, i.e., a tax collector by profession. He is to be identified with the “Levi” of Mark and Luke. He is the Patron Saint of our parish: Saint Matthew’s Dorchester, a Roman Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of Boston, Massachusetts.
Welcome to St. Angela’s/St. Matthew’s Parish Family websites. We want you to feel at home either when you are St. Angela’s Mattapan or at St. Matthew’s Dorchester from the very first time you set foot in either church.
I am Father Bill Joy. I grew up in the area myself; in fact, I was baptized at St. Matthew’s. I am delighted to serve as the pastor of both St. Angela’s and St. Matthew’s.

They have individually a rich history you will enjoy learning about.
