Meet Our New Rector
Our new Rector, The Rev. Duane J. Nettles, comes to us from the Free Church of the Annunciation–Episcopal and Mount Olivet Episcopal Church in New Orleans, Louisiana. Prior to serving as Rector, Duane was Parish Administrator at Annunciation Church and Executive Director of the Annunciation Mission, a non-profit established by Annunciation to respond to the catastrophic damage caused by Hurricane Katrina. He was ordained in 2014.
Duane is married to The Rev. Jane-Allison E. Wiggin-Nettles, who is currently serving as Associate Rector at Trinity Episcopal Church (New Orleans) and Youth Coordinator for the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana. Duane and Jane-Allison are the proud parent and stepparent of Jackson (12th grade) and Bennett (8th grade). Jane-Allison and the boys will remain in New Orleans for the remainder of the school year and will join Duane in Richmond in early summer.
