Hello to the good people of Christ Church Cathedral! My name is Matthew Bloss, and I am just now beginning my final year at the Nashotah House Theological Seminary. I have been blessed to live in many cities and states across our country during my 30 years, but most recently, I hail from Corpus Christi, Texas. There I served as Youth Ministries Director for The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd for four years. After being called to seminary in 2019, I moved to Southern Wisconsin to begin my education at Nashotah, and promptly met my now-wife Kate, who was (and still is) going to medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Kate and I just celebrated our one year anniversary in June, and are looking forward to welcoming our first child at the end of October! I have always had a great passion for teaching and preaching the truth of God, so I consider myself quite lucky to be working here at Christ Church this Fall. It's my hope that during this time I can continue to grow as a preacher and a pastor, and maybe even offer you all a few helpful sermons along the way. Thank you all so much for your hospitality and for welcoming and supporting me with this opportunity, and I look forward to spending the upcoming Fall with you!

Baby Updates!

I wanted to send an update to y'all to let you know that we are settling in well and enjoying the company of our precious baby girl: Josephine Corrie Bloss!

Kate was a trooper through over 2 days of labor (and 3 epidurals!) And delivered baby Josephine on October 22 at 6:56am. Both baby and Kate are doing great and recovering nicely! Please give all of Christ Church our thanks and gratitude for your prayers and support. We can't wait to bring her up to Eau Claire in the next month or two so everyone can meet her.
