  1. Hi Fr. Matthew
    I am working with the Rector of Christ Church (Fr. Chuck Howell) to get sermons and other stuff online and we were wondering if we could convince you to visit Staten Island during some quiet time in your week and give us some pointers and advice on what you do and how you do it?
    If you’re busy, we completely understand.
    Love, Victor
