Fr. Jarrod Lies was ordained by Bishop Gerber on March 26, 2001 to the Diocese of Wichita, Kansas. Fr. Jarrod is currently the Pastor of St. Francis of Assisi parish in Wichita. He finds his greatest fulfillment in teaching and preaching the Eucharistic person of Jesus Christ so as to inspire and enlighten in the fire of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God the Father unto the salvation of souls.

He holds undergraduate degrees in Philosophy and Theology from Conception Seminary College, a Master’s degree in Scripture and Divinity from the Pontifical College Josephinum, and will soon finish a Licentiate in Sacred Theology with an emphasis in the New Evangelization for Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit.

 Fr. Jarrod Lies spent his first two years of priesthood in Pittsburg, Kansas, at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish.  In 2003 he was made the Director of Pastoral Care (chaplain) for Bishop Carroll Catholic High School where he spent the next eight years. From July 2008 – July 2015 he served as the Pastor of St. John’s Clonmel.  And from June 2011 to June 2015 he served as the Director of the Office of Faith Formation for the Diocese of Wichita.

It's been quite a while since we've had a parish mission at St. Matthew. Hope you can attend, and let's fill the church!
