On a recent visit to Alaska, we visited St John’s Ketchikan, Alaska, and St Peter’s-by-the-sea, Sitka. The retiring rector of St John’s asked all the visitors to spread the word that they need a new rector for this small, but friendly parish nestled in this pretty town. Since the Cathedral community is large and we have lots of clergy connections, this seemed a good place to mention it.
As well as fishing and tourism industries, Ketchikan is a great arts community. The congregation is ethnically and economically diverse, not surprising in this very diverse region SO! If you know someone for whom this little parish sounds like a good fit, Spread the Word! Check out the job listing and the church’s wishlist. Candidates can contact St John’s, Ketchikan directly at 907-225-3680, PO Box 3003, Ketchikan, Alaska 99901 for more information.
