Father Steven McGuigan was installed as the rector of St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in July of 2017. He comes to us with more than 20 years of pastoral experience and extensive theological training - in fact, he is a former professor of Liturgical Theology! Father Steven's first love is parish life, however, and his lifelong passion for people, Church music, and Christian education bring much to the St. Nicholas family.
His Grace, the Right Reverend DAVID is the current Bishop of Sitka and Alaska for the Orthodox Church in America.
Father David Alexander (Kaneisdi Shaa Yeitl') is currently serving as an attached priest to the Saint Nicholas community. He is a proud husband to Matushka Heather Maria, a proud father of four children (Eve, Simon Peter, Nicholas and George), and a proud adopted grandson of the Kiks.adi clan of the Raven moiety of the Tlingit people. Father David also serves as a chaplain to the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard operating in Alaska.
