The Parish of Saint Matthew: The Episcopal Church of Pacific Palisades

Christian Spirituality For Adults


The Christian life is a journey of growth, transformation, ministry and discovery. It begins from the moment of our baptism and turning to Christ, and lasts throughout our lives. Scripture encourages us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Pet. 3:18). Saint Matthew’s offers a wide range of programs and activities to allow our parishioners of every age and season of life to “grow in grace and knowledge.”

Spirituality on Saturdays

Praying The Rosary
First Saturday of Each Month at 8:30 am in the Chapel

A group gathers at 8:30 am on the first Saturday of each month in the Chapel to pray the Rosary together. This is a very traditional and contemplative spiritual practice, which takes approximately 20 minutes. All are welcome, even if you’ve never prayed the Rosary before - we’ll offer a brief “clinic” for those who need a refresher, and rosaries will be available for those who may not have them. It's a great way to learn a new way to pray!

Baptism for Adults

From the very first days of the Christian faith, persons seeking new life in Christ received the sacrament of Holy Baptism as a sign of their sharing in the death and resurrection of Christ and their new and full participation in the glorious company of Christ’s redeemed people, the Church. In our own day, preparing for and receiving the Sacrament of Baptism as an adult is still an extraordinary way to deepen and bear witness to a commitment to Christ, and to be open in new ways to God’s love and grace.
