Father Matthew confessed at my gallery opening tonight that tomorrow he will reach the "Big 40." He looks so much younger, but I guess I’ll believe him. Matthew Green was born in Winchester (MA) Hospital on October 7th, 1972. He told me that his time in Gloucester, which has been less than two years, has been hugely enhanced by his connection with Good Morning Gloucester. GMG quickly put him in touch with the local community and the larger community beyond. We know him through his photographs and his words, and they’re all good. If you’ve met Fr. Matthew at Mug Ups, art openings, or other local events, you know how personable and approachable he is. When I took this photo, I asked him to hold up four fingers to signify age his of four decades. Now I think it should be for the next forty years he stays in Gloucester. This priest has blessed us all with his presence.
