St. Matthew Hall Renovation

St. Matthew Hall Renovation

What is the renovation?

St. Matthew Hall will be renovated the summer of 2022 to completely remove the asbestos flooring and pipe coverings, replace the stage with a storage closet, expand the current ministry storage area, install new ceiling, lighting, column enclosures, sound system and IT upgrades.  The work is expected to start early June after Confirmation and be complete by late August.  The asbestos floor removal in the Church will occur the summer of 2023 during which time Mass will be held in the new Hall.

How will the renovation be funded?  

Renovation of both the Hall and Church will be completely paid for with funds from the sale of St. Matthew Rectory in 2021.


The renovation of the Hall was approved by Bishop Cote January 21, 2022 following Diocese of Norwich requirements for initial approval of the Blessed Sacrament Pastoral Council and Finance Council.
