I came to St. Hilda's House because of the program's dedication to immersing you in the prayer life of the church as well as the life of the community. As a recently confirmed Episcopalian, I am excited to familiarize myself with the traditional language and spiritual practices of the church that were not emphasized in my past spiritual communities. I'm excited to have the liturgy written in my heart, as well as in my head.
Matthew is a recent transplant in the New Haven area from Abilene and Fort Worth, Texas. When not studying theology or aesthetics, you can probably find him at an opening night in a movie theater, watching understated films, or talking excessively about fairy tales or fantasy. Matt hopes to finish his MA in Theology soon and transfer into Berkeley at Yale Divinity School.
