St. Matthew the Apostle is a faith community of the Roman Catholic tradition. Located in Edison, NJ, our community is made up of people of many ages, races, ethnic and social backgrounds. We were established in 1952, and the parish community continues to be a community of people who seek to worship and serve God through prayer and service.
Saint Matthew School reflects the educational ministry of the Church with programs and services that focus on developing each student as a responsible Christian. Moral values are taught, as are respect for authority, compassion for the less fortunate, and the importance of contributing to society.
Ask Legislators to Increase Nonpublic Funding
Parishioners and friends of St. Matthew the Apostle Church and St. Matthew School are asked to get involved in the following issue regarding funding for Catholic Education. Governor Murphy announced his proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2020 on March 5, 2019. The Budget process is now in the hands of the Legislature. We are asking the Legislature for increases in the per-pupil amounts for the nonpublic transportation ceiling, nonpublic school nursing services and Compensatory Education. These accounts are vital for our schools. If your State legislators sit on either of the Budget Committees, please contact them and ask that they increase the amounts for these three vital accounts. If your legislators are not on either Committee, asked them to encourage their colleagues on the Committees to increase the funding.
