St. Matthew is one of only two Apostles to write a Gospel. Before St. Matthew became a follower of Jesus, he was a tax collector. St. Matthew may have worked for the Roman Empire or for Herod Antipas. In this lesson we will study the life of St. Matthew as presented in the Gospels, in the writings of the Church Fathers, and in the Catechism. We will also learn several prayers to him and have an engaging activity in honor of St. Matthew.
