The Rev. Rebecca B. Kirkpatrick
Priest Associate for Children, Youth, and Families
Rebecca returns to Saint Andrew’s as a Priest Associate for Children, Youth, and Young Adults after first serving our parish in 2005-2012.
Rebecca grew-up attending the Annie Wright Schools (Tacoma, WA) followed by Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, MA) and Yale Divinity School (New Haven, CT). Following divinity school, she spent a year as the Multi-Faith Coordinator in the Office of Chaplain at Columbia University (NYC). Wanting to return to the PNW, she joined Saint Andrew’s staff. Enjoying chaplaincy, she became an Episcopal Chaplain at both the Annie Wright Schools and the University of Washington. She then went onto serve on the Bishop’s staff in the Diocese of Olympia as the Canon for Faith Formation: 35 and Under. After five years on their staff and a year as the administrative priest at Saint Matthew-San Mateo Episcopal Church (Auburn, WA), she served as rector at Saint Philip’s Episcopal Church (Marysville, WA).
When not at church, you can find Rebecca and her wife, Cara, on the water.
