Deacon Rich Foley

Adult Faith Formation Coordinator

I was ordained a deacon in 2006.  My first ministry was at the St. Vincent de Paul Wellness Center in the Mission District.  I served a Director of Deacon Formation from 2010-2015.  I was assigned to St. Matthias Parish in 2011.  Beginning this year, I have assumed the role of Parish Life Coordinator.

I am blessed to serve as a deacon here at St. Matthias.  I love learning.  I also love being a new grandfather.   I enjoy reading, traveling and spending time with my grandson.   My life has been and continues to be a life of service to others—family, friends, parishioners and those in need.

Sabrina Harper

Pastoral Associate
Children/Youth Faith Formation Coordinator

I have been a member of St. Matthias’ staff since 1999 and have held many different positions serving the parish community. Currently, I am the Pastoral Associate. My ministry includes faith formation for children kindergarten through high school and their parents, Confirmation and First Communion preparation, and office administration.

Personally, I was born and raised in Redwood City, in fact, so was my mother, grandfather, and great-grandfather. I attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel school, Notre Dame High School in Belmont, then Sequoia High.



Lisa Bamford

Administrative Assistant

In August, 2015 I joined the St. Matthias Staff as Receptionist.  You can find me in the Rectory four days a week, handling Mass requests, logging your donations, managing supplies for the Church and Hall, and generally helping Sabrina, Rich, and our priests in whatever way I can.  I am also part of the Family Support Group.  

On the personal side, I have lived here in Redwood City with my husband, Jon,  and three children for 25 years. My previous career was as a Marriage and Family Therapist; and prior to that I was in corporate Organizational Development.  Happily, for ten years I was home with my children full-time.  

I am enjoying getting to know our parishioners!  Please call or come by the Rectory if there is anything I can help you with.


Randall Watts

Music Director

Two years ago with luck, he had the opportunity to rejoin his musical and dramatic roots in California teaching music, drama, and performing to sixth, seventh, and eighth grades for Mercy High School’s summer program Tools for School. Later, He was hired and currently works full-time as the Resource Center Coordinator for the school and teaches Drama 1 and 2. In this position, he is in charge of scheduling the testing for girls with accommodations, runs the lunch study program, and tutors students falling behind in subjects; a position that he loves and feels privileged to have a this blessed opportunity to make such a difference in the life of someone in need. Randall has been music director the St. Matthias for two years this October and has always felt welcomed. He feels so blessed to be playing and singing with such wonderful people.
