…Clergy, Staff, Vestry

All Saints Episcopal Church has a wonderful leadership and administration team!


Our Rector (the priest in charge of the parish) is the Rev. Joseph Farnes.

Fr. Joseph grew up in eastern Idaho. He graduated from Whitman College with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in religion, and along the way he discovered the joy of the Episcopal Church. He earned his Master of Divinity degree from Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, TX. After serving a parish in western Massachusetts and spending time exploring monastic spirituality, he was called as rector of All Saints in 2019.

All Saints is also glad to have retired clergy to help out! The Rev. Robin Finch helps with worship when Fr. Joseph is out of town, and the Rev. Deacon Mary Ellen Gallagher assists with our social justice ministries and helps at the altar.


Our Parish Administrator is Nicole Geibel. She wears many hats: bookkeeping, paperwork, bulletins, newsletters, events, and being the friendly face and voice to greet people who stop by or call in!

Our Music Director is Shauna Emara. Shauna brings her passion for music and is always eager to lift up people’s musical talents! Shauna loves helping people share their musical talents in worship and celebration!


Our Senior Warden (the chief lay member of the parish) is Patty Rowett-Matlock. A lifelong Episcopalian, Patty has served in many different capacities in parishes across the world. She’s also active in our diocesan leadership.

Our Junior Warden (the lay member in charge of buildings and grounds) is Barb Tool. A retired teacher from Nebraska, Barb brings midwestern humor and diligence to all that she does to help us take care of our building and landscaping.

Our Vestry (the governing board of the parish) includes Sue Nims, Lindy Neufeld, Carolyn Cornwall, Robin Baumgartner, Dean Hagerman, and Julie Walker. Our vestry is also assisted by Mary Hill as clerk, and Mary Kay Peterson and Sherrill Geddes as co-treasurers.
