Welcome Vicar Daniel !

Vicar Daniel Smith begins his year of serving and learning with us in July. His first Sunday with us will be July 17th. On that day we will have a rite of welcome and installation at both services, so that the entire congregation can affirm his presence with us to lead and serve among us. We will also have a reception following each service so that people can greet our Vicar and begin to get to know him. We are looking for all our members to come and be a part of this special service, and the beginning of a new chapter in the life of Saint Matthew and our intern.
