Originally intending to become a teacher, Fr. Kyle earned his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Calgary. After graduation, he married Leanne and worked in sales and marketing. During this time, Fr. Kyle became an active reader in the parish while Mat. Leanne directed the choir.

In 2011, Fr. Kyle and Mat. Leanne decided to enter into ministry full-time. Fr.

Kyle was ordained to the Holy Diaconate by His Eminence, the Most Reverend Irénée and on May 25, 2014 to the Holy Priesthood by His Eminence, the Most Reverend Michael. For the final two years of schooling, Fr. Kyle served as an intern at Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church in Yonkers, NY. Upon the completion of his studies at St. Vladimir’s Seminary in 2015, Fr. Kyle was assigned as the second priest at St. Peter the Aleut where he served until June 2017. In July of that year, Fr. Kyle was assigned as rector of All-Saints of Alaska in Victoria, BC. Fr.
