Fr. Moses was born in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. He spent his early life playing sports and building treehouses. He attended high school in Portsmouth NH, and after graduating enrolled at Colorado Christian University. While in Colorado he met his future wife Matushka Christy, who had moved from Vermont to Colorado to study art and enjoy the mountains. After continuing his Christian education in Corrientes Argentina, he returned home, and he and Christy were married. He took a job building barn homes for people in northern New England. After their second son was born and desiring less travel for work, he then took a job working marine construction on Lake Winnipesaukee. Sometime after, he answered the call to attend St. Tikhon’s Seminary. In his final year at seminary, he was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by His Eminence Archbishop Michael on March 9th, 2019. Shortly thereafter he was assigned to be the rector at Christ the Savior. Fr. Moses and Matushka Christy reside in Middlebury with their four Children: Elias, Seraphim, Symeon, and Maria.

St. Nektarios, help us find the Path to Happiness

“A Christian must be courteous to all. His words and deeds should breath with the grace of the Holy Spirit, which abides in his soul, so that in this way he might glorify the name of God. He who regulates all of his speech also regulates all of his actions. He who keeps watch over the words he is about say also keeps watch over the deeds he intends to do, and he never goes out of the bounds good and benevolent conduct. The graceful speech of a Christian is characterized by delicateness and politeness. This fact, born of love, produces peace and joy. On the other hand, boorishness gives birth to hatred, enmity, affliction, competitiveness, disorder and wars.”

“How mistaken are those people who seek happiness outside of themselves, in foreign lands and journeys, in riches and glory, in great possessions and pleasures, in diversions and vain things, which have a bitter end! In the same thing to construct the tower of happiness outside of ourselves as it is to build a house in a place that is consistently shaken by earthquakes. Happiness is found within ourselves, and blessed is the man who has understood this. Happiness is a pure heart, for such a heart becomes the throne of God. Thus says Christ of those who have pure hearts: “I will visit them, and will walk in them, and I will be a God to them, and they will be my people.” (II Cor. 6:16) What can be lacking to them? Nothing, nothing at all! For they have the greatest good in their hearts: God Himself!” - St. Nektarios of Aegina, The Path to Happiness
