It is a time of transition within our diocese, and we have new a clergy transition to announce.

The Rev. Rachel Endicott has accepted a call as interim rector of St. Andrew’s, Seattle.

Rachel was born in the U.K. to a priest father and musician/teacher mother. After receiving a BA in Psychology from Scripps College and an MBA from National University, Rachel worked doing market research in the medical device market and provided community education and administration in the not-for-profit arena. Rachel attended Virginia Theological Seminary, graduating in 1997, then moved to the Pacific Northwest. With specialized training in Interim Ministry, Rachel has served a variety of parishes in the Diocese of Olympia. Currently, Rachel is finishing up as Interim at St. Paul’s, Bellingham.

Rachel’s passions in ministry are: supporting the faith journey of people of all ages; teaching and preaching, liturgy and music; and peace and justice issues. Rachel enjoys reading, particularly murder mysteries, walking/hiking, and swimming (she is certified as a life guard). She is married to Gary Irvin, a CPA, and has two young adult children who will both soon be college graduates. Two rescue beagles and a newly-adopted mustang round out her household.

Please join us in welcoming Rev. Endicott to her new role in the diocese, and keep all congregations experiencing transition in your prayers.
