WHO WE ARE

MEET THE STAFF

 
 father andrew mattingly | DIRECtor  Fr. Andrew Mattingly is a priest for the Diocese of Kansas City – St. Joseph. Currently, he is associate pastor at Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Kansas City, Missouri while also serving as diocesan director for young adults and campus ministry. Although a lifelong Catholic, Fr. Mattingly went through a period of personal conversion during his last couple years of high school, particularly due to two things: the personal witness of a teacher on fire for love of God and the Church, as well as truly discovering the reality of the Holy Eucharist for the first time.  After a semester at Benedictine College in Atchison, KS, Fr. Mattingly transferred to Conception Seminary College, graduating in 2011.  Afterward, he was sent for theology studies in Rome, was ordained a priest in the summer of 2015, and returned for one final year of studies in Rome before coming back to Kansas City permanently in the summer of 2016. In his free time, Fr. Mattingly enjoys playing disc golf, reading about Church history,  and listening to sacred music.

 lilly tighe | assistant director  Lilly joined the Diocese of Kansas City- St. Joseph in July of 2017 as assistant to Fr. Mattingly in the Young Adult Office.  Graduating in May of 2017 with her B.S. in Marketing from Northwest Missouri State University, she was so thankful that the Lord opened the door for her to work for His Church.  Lilly loves to pray the Rosary, run, take photos, watch saint movies, enjoy music, read, and spend lots of intentional time with her family. She hopes to be more like her favorite saint friends, St. Therese of Lisieux and St. John Paul II. Her dream is that every young adult in Kansas City would know about City on a Hill, and feel welcome to come exactly as they are. She prays that everyone in KC would know how loved they are!
