Angelic Faces: The Hagerty Family

By Darlia Clerico

While relocating to San Mateo, the Hagerty family attended a summer service. They were so warmly greeted at coffee hour, they immediately knew St. Matthew’s would be their church home. The Hagerty family is exceptionally active at church and the Day School. Each one of them is always willing to do more for St. Matthew’s and we are blessed to have them in our church and school community. 

Diane and Jeff stated, “We feel truly blessed to have a deep experience of both our church and school. Collectively, it is such a nurturing, loving, and fun community.” Some of their favorite activities are Blessing of the Animals, Easter Services, the Gala, and the Youth Group Overnight. They love the unending hospitality, cherished friends and many wonderful experiences at St. Matthew’s. 

Diane serves on the Vestry and is a member of St. Catherine’s. She did an outstanding job as the Gala Co-Chair. Diane is always making delicious goodies for our church functions. 

Jeff serves as an Usher. His project management skills came in handy to lead the Joint Church and School Master Planning Committee. One significant project he undertook was the bench work over the bioswale as part of the update to our beautiful Memorial Garden. Jeff also served on the Day School Board of Trustees. 

Lauren and Patrick are Acolytes. They participated in the Confirmation Class of 2017. They help in the church nursery during services and attend Youth Group. Lauren and Patrick are two respectful, well-mannered, wonderful young adults.  

Diane, Jeff, Lauren and Patrick, thank you for all that you do and give of yourselves for the Glory of God.
