The Rev. Matthew Moretz grew up in Augusta, Georgia where he was baptized at the Church of the Good Shepherd and was a student at the parish’s Episcopal Day School. He discerned a call to the priesthood after his undergraduate work at Davidson College. 

Matthew then worked as the Christian Education Director of Christ’s Church, Frederica in St. Simon’s Island, Georgia. While attending the General Theological Seminary in New York City, he served as an intern at St. Bart’s for two years. 

Matthew was ordained in 2006, and he has most recently served as the Curate of Christ’s Church in Rye, New York, one of the oldest Episcopal parishes in the United States. He produces an online series, entitled “Father Matthew Presents,” which shares the treasures of Christianity one video at a time. The series often features his miniature dachshund, Beauregard.
