Matthew Lopina was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin and raised in both Wisconsin and North Carolina. Matt settled in North Carolina and earned a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Appalachian State University in 2006, and has held a professional teaching license since 2012.


He met his wife, Erika, during graduate studies at Charlotte University, and they married at St. Peter’s in Charlotte in 2011. Matt and Erika’s family joined St. Pius X in 2018 and their two daughters attend St. Pius X school. Matt has taught in public high schools, Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic School, and once served as director of the after school program at St. Pius X. He volunteered with the youth ministry at St. Peter’s in 2010 and has participated in various parish activities across the Piedmont. He is a 3rd Degree Knight of Columbus.


If he’s not spotted at his desk, inside a classroom, or the church, Matt is likely to be found visiting his flock of chickens, working in his vegetable garden, roasting fresh green coffee beans, or making s’mores with his family while camping.
