Matthew's latest endeavor is Sing! Against Cancer- a yearly event to bring people together for an enjoyable evening of faith, music, and hope, while supporting each other and our yearly community beneficiary.
After Matthew's mother was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer in February 2020, and experiencing the diagnosis first hand, Matthew began to think about what could be done for the Cancer Community. During his time at St. Ambrose, he experienced many parishioners and Music Ministry Members who were personally affected by cancer. This annual event is a way to honor not only his Mother and Friends, but strangers from all aspects of life.
Matthew is married to his wife, Erin for ten years. They have two adopted children, Vincent (12) and Nicholas (7). They also have two interesting cats named after cars; Mercedes and Cadillac.
