St Matthew's Catholic Church is located in the town of Kilmarnock in the East Ayrshire region of Scotland. It was founded in 1974 to serve the needs of the then developing housing estate in New Farm Loch, Kilmarnock. The church building was opened in 1977 and the current presbytery added a year or two later.
A joint Parish Pilgrimage to the Holy Door at Whithorn will take place on Saturday the 18th of June, 2016. We will leave at 10am and return at approximately 7pm. There will be a stop at Newton Stewart for packed lunches on the way down and a stop for fish suppers at Girvan on the way home. The cost will be £5 per adult and £2-50 per child.
St Matthew's Church is a Roman Catholic Community and the current parish priest is Father Martin Chambers.
