The Rev. Matthew Wright, Priest-in-Charge


The Rev. Matthew Wright grew up in Western North Carolina, wandering into an Episcopal Church for the first time in 2003—with no idea of where that small act would lead!  He received his B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and M.Div. from Virginia Theological Seminary.  Matthew was ordained to the priesthood in September 2012 and has served as priest-in-charge at St. Gregory's since October 2014.


In addition to his part-time ministry with St. Gregory's, Matthew serves as a retreat leader and teaches for Northeast Wisdom and the Contemplative Society, non-profits dedicated to the renewal of the Christian Wisdom tradition.  He is a vowed Companion in the Rivendell Community, which has a local Chapter based at St. Gregory's.  Matthew lives with his wife and two cats in Woodstock.
