Matt Marino

Rector
Email me

An adolescent atheist turned priest, Matt likes to drink coffee, talk about Jesus, and will shamelessly invite himself aboard your sailboat. Matt and the love of his life, Kari, have two kids and a dog.
Also on his resume: Basketball coach, history teacher, recovery planner, Young Life Staff, summer camp program architect, youth/young adult director for the Diocese of Arizona, seminary instructor, church planter, consultant, and ballboy for the Phoenix Suns. Each of those experiences has left him more in wonder at the grandeur of the One who made us and calls us home through the cross and empty tomb.

Michael
Michael Giuliani

Music Director & Organist
Email me

Michael is a pianist, organist, conductor, and life-long church musician. He grew up in Southern California and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (culture shock much?) before heading to North Park University in Chicago to complete a degree in piano performance. He went on to obtain the Master of Church Music degree in Organ Performance from Concordia University Chicago, and is currently pursuing a doctorate in worship studies at the Institute for Worship Studies in Jacksonville.

An active and sought-after musician of unique versatility, Michael’s musical endeavors have taken him across the United States and Europe. He has held positions with the renowned St. Charles Singers, the King’s Brass, and the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Gospel & Spiritual Ensembles, among others. He is a passionate advocate for music education, and has been influential in the founding of several parish-based community music schools. As a worship leader, he desires nothing more than to use God’s gift of music as a vehicle for the Word of God that brings people to saving faith in Jesus Christ, and to edify the church in their walk with Him.

In his spare time, Michael enjoys exploring various cultures, playing chamber music, studying theology, sailboating, drinking prosecco, and spending time with his family. He lives in St. Augustine with his wife Agnes, a violinist, and their four beautiful children: Lucien, Eloise, Adeline, and Nicholas.

Steve Seibert

Deacon
Email me

Steve was born in Pennsylvania, moved to Ormond Beach at two, and attended Catholic School for twelve years, graduating from Father Lopez (Daytona Beach). He served in the Navy right out of high school. Upon discharge, he worked as a printer and motel desk clerk and traveled a circuitous route (four colleges/universities) to a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. He is thankful to his wife Leila, who brought him into a relationship with Jesus through the Episcopal Church. For him, there is a powerful yet gentle invitation in this Church that comes straight from the heart of Jesus Christ.

Steve and Leila have two children and four grandchildren. They value the time they are able to visit with them; they love traveling with Maine being a place that speaks to their souls. Steve was ordained to the diaconate in April 2021.

CLAY BLASSER

Sound Technician
Email Me

A jack of all trades, Clay has done a bit of everything. Anything he hasn’t done, he is quick to pick up. His passion is making things sound good, especially music. Growing up in Orange Park, he was in Jazz Band in high school, and got a Bachelor’s degree from Full Sail in Orlando for Recording Arts. Equally at home in a recording studio, control room, or live setting, Clay has crawled, climbed, and squeezed into the tightest spaces all in the name of sound. In 2020, Clay was about to move to LA and then COVID hit, landing him in Saint Augustine. He was blessed to have met Dan Bagan, who introduced him to Trinity. The rest is history…
