Curtis is in love with Montréal... and his girls (wife Marney and daughters Mia, Kate and Tori!) Born and raised in the Canadian Prairies, the Matogas came to Montreal with a vision to see the empty cathedrals of this city re-opened. God and life have woven a beautiful tapestry around that vision and the result is that Curtis and Marney have become a core part of our pastoral leadership and teaching team.
If you're looking for Marney, just listen for her laugh! Marney brings such joy to our team and the wisdom of being mother to 3 amazing grown up gals and partner in life and ministry with Curtis. A Montrealer of now nearly 20 years (originally from Alberta) Marney contributes to our pastoral and teaching teams and helps us keep the show on the road. Need some encouragement? Look no further!
Mark normally has his hands outstretched for a great welcome, wherever he is! Mark has many years of experience in church life, along with his wife who is also our Bishop of Montreal, Mary Irwin-Gibson.

You'll see Mark and his team as you come through the doors and they would be happy to guide, direct or answer any questions you may have.
