Father Daniel Mattila's Last Day at St. John's

Father Daniel’s last day as Priest-in Charge of St. John’s will be Sunday, October 15. We’ve grown to love him during his 5 years plus at the parish. Father Daniel brought us a firm faith, expressed clearly and gently, grounded in Scripture and church traditions. He shared his insights on psychology and how the human mind works in order to help us live as Christians in community, in the outer world, and inside ourselves, all of which can be complex and confusing. His sermons, always well thought out, prayed out, and prepared, challenged us, educated us, and often made us smile. It is a joy to worship with and be friends with Father Daniel. We will miss him and we wish him well in whatever the future brings. God bless!
