Matthew Florian was born in western Pennsylvania and grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. A lifelong Catholic and product of Catholic education, Matthew is the eldest of 5 children. Matthew graduated from Holy Cross College in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in history, and from Bethel College’s Transition to Teaching program in 2014.

First of all I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Father Dermot Gahan back to Saint Matthew Parish. He arrived a month early and we were almost ready for him. As I stated in the bulletin a few weeks ago we will have him here with us until September of 2020. Anyway; it is so good to have him back in the parish.
