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. We will be working with the Diocese to identify a date for his official investiture at St. Matthews and will keep you updated related to plans for this ceremony.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Greg Parrish – Junior Warden.

Yours in Christ,

Karen Dubiel
Senior Warden
