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.
