Fr. Matthew Spencer, O.S.J. is the third of eleven children growing up in a very Catholic home. Before ever considering the priesthood or religious life, he did his undergraduate studies in Computer Science and worked as a software engineer in the telecom sector. After a close call with death, he began to investigate the consecrated life and a priestly vocation. He entered the seminary of the Oblates of St. Joseph in 2003. He completed a Master of Divinity and a Master of Arts in Spiritual Theology in 2009 and was ordained to the priesthood later that year. He currently serves as Director of Communications for the Oblates of St. Joseph out of Mount St. Joseph, Loomis, CA.
