Man Disrupted Mass at Saint Matthew Parish Last Weekend

We have received a few inquiries about what took place during the 4:30 p.m. Mass at Saint Matthew Parish on Saturday, April 26th. Based on our sources, a man walked into the church during the Mass, spoke loudly and was asked to leave, which he did.

We asked the Archdiocese about the incident and received the following from Kevin Gavin, a spokesperson for the Archdiocese:

An individual did create a disturbance at one Mass over the course of the last weekend at Saint Matthew Parish in Conshohocken. No one was harmed in any way. The parish did file a police report and is grateful for the assistance of law enforcement. As this matter is an open police investigation, I defer to law enforcement for any further comment.

Prior to asking the Archdiocese about the incident we had contacted the Conshohocken Police Department. That there was an incident was confirmed and the department shared that there had not been an arrest. No more was offered as it was deemed an “on-going investigation.”
