Father Deacon Matthew is a 2014 graduate of Christ the Saviour Seminary in Johnstown, PA and a 2009 graduate of the University of Buffalo. The newly ordained Father Matthew will be the third member of our family. following his grandfather, the late Protopresbyter Stephen Dutko and his uncle, Protopresbyter James Dutko, to serve the Orthodox faith in the Holy Priesthood since our grandparents came to these shores over a hundred years ago. Upon his ordination, Father Matthew and his Pani, Kathryn, will travel to Woodstock, Georgia where Father Matthew will assume the pastorate of St. Elizabeth Orthodox Church of that community. Axios!
