Fr. Matthew Kirk grew up in Nashotah, and attended St. Charles Church in Hartland. While on retreat during his senior year at Arrowhead High School, Fr. Matthew had a moment that changed his life, as he realized for the first time that God was real and present in the Eucharist. His faith deepened as he attended University of Wisconsin-Madison and became involved with St. Paul Catholic Student Center as well as founded a Catholic fraternity, Phi Kappa Theta. After graduating in 2016, he was accepted to St. Francis de Sales Seminary and during his studies, he served at St. Mary’s Visitation Church in Elm Grove. Following his ordination to the priesthood in May 2022, he became an associate pastor in West Allis and served there until coming to Holy Family.
