Clergy & Staff
The clergy and staff at St. Matthew’s is small, especially given the impact the church has on the community of Fairbanks and beyond. Since its inception in 1904, the church has been served by one full-time priest…but other priests have served alongside as they were able. Office staff has usually been just one or two part-time employees, though St. Matthew’s has had a full time Parish Administrator since 2018.
We have been grateful over the years for dedicated volunteers who have offered their time and talent to help accomplish the work of the church.
Currently, we are without a Rector, The Rev. Gail Loken serves as a part time Interim and we have a handful of Supply Clergy who have been gracious to lead our Sunday Worship Services and a few wonderful Parishioners who lead Morning Prayer when a priest is not available.
Kaylee Fischer serves as the Parish Administrator.
