Rev. Dr. Matthew Cadwell has accepted the Call to serve as Vicar-in-Charge at Old North Church in Boston’s North End. He will begin his ministry at Old North on November 16, 2020.
Rev. Cadwell replaces Vicar Rev. Stephen Ayres, who retired in December 2019 after twenty-two years of celebrating mass at Old North. Rev. Cadwell comes from Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Wakefield, where he has been the Rector since 2008, coincidentally the same Church where Rev. Ayres served prior to Old North.
Rev. Cadwell was recommended by Bishops Alan Gates and Gayle Harris who said, “Matthew has a personal warmth, an engaging presence, a playful spirit, and the heart of a pastor, all of which will serve you well.”
