Matthew is a part-time professor in theological studies at Concordia University, as well as at Loyola College for Diversity and Sustainability. In the spring of 2012, he climbed over the Pyrenees with groups of pilgrims on the 800-km walk to Santiago and asked them ‘why are you doing this?’ The result is called “Something Grand.”
