Marja-Sisko Aalto (born Olli-Veikko Aalto; July 29, 1954) is a Finnish transsexual priest of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland who has been the vicar of the Imatra parish since 1986.[1]

In November 2008 Aalto told to the media that he is a male-to-female transsexual and will have a sex-change operation. This caused a great controversy in the Church. The bishop of Mikkeli, Voitto Huotari, commented that there is no juridical obstacle for Aalto contuing as a vicar, but that there will be problems.[1]

In 2009 almost 600 members broke away from the Imatra parish.[2] In November 2009 Aalto returned to the job of vicar after spending a year on leave. In March 2010 Aalto requested to be allowed to resign.[3]
