Deacon Paul Erickson is a clergyman in the Orthodox Church of America, Diocese of Alaska. He is assigned to Saint Nicholas Church in Juneau.

Erickson, along with the rest of his parish in Milwaukie, Oregon, joined the OCA, Diocese of the West, on September 16, 1995. Prior to that time the Church of the Annunciation was a part of Christ the Saviour Brotherhood, which is what the Holy Order of MANS called itself after it was received into the Archdiocese of Vasiloupolis in 1988.

At the March, 2008, meeting of Alaska clergy, Orthodox Christians for Accountability reported that Erickson and his son, Hierodeacon Panteleimon, were the only two who spoke out in favor of Bishop Nikolai Soraich’s interpretation of the canons.
