Kenosha Pride | Volunteers Needed
The Episcopal Church has a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression. With that in mind, we will again be working with Kenosha Pride, an organization dedicated to building a stronger presence and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community in the Kenosha area.

We need volunteers to help set-up/tear-down our booth, and to man the booth during the event. Please use the sign-up sheet in the back of the church, or email the office, if you are interested in helping.


Message from the Senior Warden

The Vestry, after prayerful discernment and consideration, voted unanimously at our meeting last night to elect The Rev. David Manley as Rector of St. Matthew’s Parish, Kenosha effective July 1, 2023. Please join us in celebrating this commitment to an on-going partnership between St. Matthew’s and Father Dave.

The Vestry feels very blessed that Father Dave has agreed to walk with us as we enter this new phase in the spiritual life of our Church. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Greg Parrish – Junior Warden.

Yours in Christ,

Karen Dubiel
Senior Warden
