Father Randy Mattox
Fr. Randall Thomas Mattox was born in Marietta, GA, the youngest in a blended family. In high school he fell in love with acting and participated in various theatrical productions throughout his young adulthood. He attended Emory University where he studied religion, and upon graduation, worked in the mental health ﬁeld while he pursued his acting interests and contemplated entering the priesthood in the Episcopal Church.
In his mid twenties, he became interested in the Catholic Church due to the inﬂuence and intercession of the Blessed Mother, and in 1994 oﬃcially entered into the Catholic faith. He forthwith felt a call to the priesthood, and entered seminary in 1995. He was ordained to the priesthood by Archbishop John F. Donohue in 2001 and served his ﬁrst assignment at Holy Cross Church in Tucker.
He has served as pastor of Good Samaritan in Ellijay, St. Pius X in Conyers, and St. James in Madison.
His hobbies include cooking, gardening, sewing, computers and learning new hobbies, for he has dabbled in many. You can always ﬁnd him near his trusted companion Ellijah, who accompanies him nearly everywhere. You will know Father Randy is nearby when you see his golden retriever running around!
Fr. Randy is delighted to be Pastor of St. George and looks forward to getting to know everyone and growing in faith together.
