San Matteo Apostolo ed Evangelista is a modern parish church at Via Anagnina 373 in the Casal Morena district, north-east of Ciampino Airport.

The parish is administered by the Missionarii Identes, and the dedication is to St Matthew.

It was completed in 1953 as a rather utilitarian concrete building. There is a campanile on the right side looking just like a radio mast (perhaps it doubles up as one), with a cross on top. The rectangular façade is clad in stone rubble decorated with five horizontal concrete lines, except for the square central portion above the entrance. This is just concrete, and contains a porthole window with stained glass depicting St Matthew. Another, rectangular stained glass window in the same radial style in blue, purple, red and yellow (no green) shows the Dove of the Holy Spirit and is just over the entrance as a transom.

There is a notable crucifix over the altar, with the naturalistic corpus in bronze.
