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!
