    A Reformed Episcopal Priest & Classical Educator

    Obituary of Rev. Steve Macías (1990-2073)

    Yesterday, I read Donald Miller’s book Hero on a Mission (https://amzn.to/4aIN9uw) and one of the exercises is to write your obituary and work on your goals backward from there. Here’s a draft with lofty ambitions and certain “delusions of grandeur.”

    Obituary of Rev. Steve Macías (1990-2073)

    LOS ALTOS, Calif. (AP) — The Rev. Steve Macías, 83, a well known Bay Area pastor and pioneering leader for classical education passed away in his sleep with his fwife Sarah and his four children at his bedside on Monday, January 1. His eldest son Bishop Athanasius will conduct the funeral service at the recently constructed Reformed Episcopal Cathedral of St. Paul near Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. In lieu of flowers, donations can be directed to the Canterbury Schools led by headmistress Lucy Assumpta Zhang.

    Rev. Macias began his ministry as Headmaster at Canterbury School and grew the small parish school into an a multi campus network of Classical schools throughout the Western United States and Mexico. His work inspired an explosion of hundreds of Anglican schools. He earned his doctorate from Oxford and founded Canterbury College and Seminary San Francisco in 2035.

    He took St. Paul’s Los Altos from a congregation of a dozen in 2019 through several expansions to its current current 5,000 seat gothic-styled church complete with flying buttresses, organ, and choir loft for the world-renowned Canterbury Choristers led by Canon Ambrose Macías.

    He also founded the Kuyper Center for Public Policy which hosted Bible studies and seminars on Christian leadership for local and state government officials and staff. Rev. Macias’s son Sen. Basil Macias (L-Calif.) led the organization from 2040 to 2063, when Basil was elected the 77th Governor of California.

    Macias was the author of more than 50 books, but his real pleasure was teaching chapel at the Canterbury schools – which he faithfully continued until the week of his passing. His body will be buried at the Catedral de la Ascensión in México City — where Macías spent his Summers planting Anglican Churches and establishing Classical schools.
