St. Matthew's Episcopal Church Maple Glen, Pennsylvania

Please note: Regular in-person activities and services at Saint Matthew’s remain suspended as we seek to do our part to help contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We ask you to keep in your prayers all who have been affected by this pandemic and those who care for them. To stay in community and support one another during this time, we will continue to live-stream our service at 9:30 a.m. each Sunday. We are now also offering an in-person worship service, held outdoors, each Sunday at 8:00 a.m., weather permitting.

Update – Search Committee – July 6th, 2020

The Search Committee leads had a very productive kickoff meeting with Rev. Canon Arlette D. Benoit Joseph, the Canon of Transition Ministry for the Diocese of Pennsylvania, and we continue to work weekly with Bud Holland, our rector search consultant.

Arlette mentioned that application flow will probably be a little slow until we get closer to our end of application receiving window on August 26th. This is due to COVID-19 and summer vacations.

We have received a couple applicants thus far and will start reviewing their materials and generating follow up questions and scheduling interviews as appropriate.

The search process is confidential so we will not be sharing candidate information and backgrounds, but we will continue to post regular updates on the progress.

Please keep the Search Committee and our applicants in your prayers.

Yours in Christ,

Tim Walsh
