As a missionary in Canada and Ireland, Matt proclaimed the Gospel to over ten thousand teens and young adults.

Matt best demonstrates his infectious passion for the faith when he speaks about the many wounds that pornography inflicts, the healing that Christ offers in the Sacraments, and the freedom that the Church proposes in Her teachings on the virtue of chastity.
Men can also forgive sins through the power of Christ in the priesthood. �Through this sacrament we aim to reform or lives not just to feel better by confessing our sins.
