The Rev. Matt Oprendek is a graduate of General Theological Seminary in New York City, and previously worked at Christ Church in Exeter New Hampshire as their curate. Prior to attending seminary, Father Matt practiced civil litigation in Houston, TX for thirteen years. Father Matt loves making connections between our "regular life" and our life with God. His sermons mix practical insights with theological truths in a conversational style.
Pat Martin previously worked at GMAC as the department manager for accounting and leasing and is able to juggle anywhere from 15 to 30 projects at once. Pat handles our finances along with our bookkeeper, our nursery school administration, and assists Father Matt. Pictures are coming soon!
Our Vestry consists of our two wardens, Julian Sottovia and Sally Richmond, along with six members: Mimi Colon, Nancy Maio, Rosebud Pitt, Erich Stollberger, Nick Cambria, and Dorraine Russin.
