We hope that you will enjoy your virtual visit. We would also love to meet you in person in the church office, at any service, or please join us for refreshments after the 10:30 am service of worship on Sundays. We are a diverse group, serious about hospitality, faith, and devoted to the world God loves. We are also very attentive to stewardship. Our premise is that everything we are and all that we have is a gift from God and entrusted to our care. Everybody is invited to join in strengthening Christian faith and sharing hope through worship, study and action

I have told you often that I love being part of St. Matthias Parish. My thirteen years as your rector have been fulfilling, and each relationship that we have formed is a privilege for me.
Now it is time for me to retire. I have always hoped to retire when I am still healthy and happy in my ministry. I am both healthy and happy, for which I am very thankful. I do have mixed feelings about leaving because I will miss you very deeply. I cherish our community here. At the same time, I am looking forward to being able to devote time to interests that I have not been free to pursue.
