My name is Dustin Batista, and I am happy to serve St. Matthew the Evangelist Parish here in Billerica as Pastoral Associate and Assistant Coordinator of Teen Ministries.

I graduated Merrimack College in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religious and Theological Studies. I went on to earn a Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Ministry from Saint Joseph’s College of Maine.

I have been involved in Youth Ministry within Parish settings, and Campus Ministry within High School settings.

My full time work is at Austin Prep in Reading, where I teach Theology and serve as the Department Chair and Coordinator of Christian Service. 

After getting married, my wife and I moved to Billerica, where she grew up. We are happy to be raising our family here, and to be a part of the faith community in town. I am currently in formation for the permanent diaconate, and appreciate your support and prayers.
