Saint Matthew's Rector
On July 29, 2018 Fr. Kevin presided over his final service as rector of Saint Matthew's.
Kevin has accepted a new position and returning after 12.5 years with his family to his home state of North Carolina. We wish Kevin, Julia, Harry, and Robert all the best on this next journey as family.
The Vestry of Saint Matthew's is currently working alongside the Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island toward a replacement to Fr. Kevin. Canon Linda Grenz from the Diocese is working with our wardens to coordinate our Rector Search, and each Sunday we will have guest celebrants for scheduled services during this expedited search process.
Such interim periods are important phases in a congregation’s life: They can be an opportunity to reflect on the existing gifts and challenges of the parish as well as to discern how the parish should evolve in its spiritual journey and as an important member of the larger Jamestown community.
Please visit our Rector Search web page or speak with the members of the Vestry on questions, suggestions or concerns.
