Life is messy. We make wrong turns that turn out to be right ones. We make right turns that turn out as wrong ones. Sometimes we make wrong turns that just keep getting ‘wronger’. Where is Jesus in all this? Does He really have a plan for me today? What about in the future? Will I be happy on His path? What if I’m not? Is following God just an oppressive monotony of constantly saying yes to things that I don’t want to do?
Join us as we dive into the idea of living on purpose and being fully alive with powerful worship, a relevant teaching, and Eucharistic Adoration. Nights are free and open to all ages and faiths.
Meet the Team
Mission Contact/Worship Leader
Matt’s first profound experience of God was during 2001 when he attended Sacred Heart Boys’ Retreat #60. Unfortunately, the “seed fell on rocky soil AND thorns grew up and choked it.” His faith was shallow and the lures of the world were too much for him to handle so years of internal misery followed. Then, God cut deeper into the soil of his soul when he attended Steubenville on the Bayou in June 2008. Since then, he has an undying passion for sharing the Gospel message and Eucharistic Adoration. He is married to his incredible wife Danielle, and they have 4 children (Elise, Truitt, Cohen, and Declan).
