Dear Parishioners,

Please join me as we welcome Fr. Ignacio to the St. Matthew Parish Family. We look forward to having him share his gifts and talents from God with our Parish Family.

Please be sure to take a moment to introduce yourselves this weekend after Masses and at our Saturday picnic celebrating the Feast of St. Matthew after the 4pm Mass.

Fr. Ignatio was appointed by 
The Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano to our parish as Parochial Vicar, effective Sept. 15, 2022.  He was born and raised in the Philippines and educated at De Lasalle with the Christian Brothers. He was a seminarian with the Legionaries of Christ for eight years. Father Ignacio was incardinated into the Diocese of Bridgeport and was ordained on May 16, 2009.

In his thirteen years of service in Fairfield County, he has served the parishes of Saint Rose of Lima in Newtown, St. Lawrence in Shelton, St. Aloysius Parish in New Canaan and most recently St. Thomas More in Darien. Please keep Father Ignacio in prayer as he joins our St. Matthew Parish Family!

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Jeff
