New Vocations Director Named

Father S. Matthew Gray, newly appointed Director of Vocations
of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA

The AMS will soon have a new Director of Vocations. He is Father S. Matthew Gray, Ch, Capt, USAF, a priest of the Diocese of Charleston, SC. Father Gray replaces Father Aidan Logan who recently began to offer pastoral assistance at Assumption Grotto Church in Detroit, MI, after serving as AMS Vocations Director for seven years.

Father Gray, 41, is well suited for the position with experience as both a vocations director and a military chaplain. At the moment, he is Director of Vocations for the Diocese of Charleston while also serving as Air Force staff chaplain to the 169th Fighter Wing at McEntire Joint National Guard Base in Richland County, SC.

Father Gray is currently on deployment with his unit to the Middle East.  He is expected to assume his new position at the AMS around the beginning of August.
