Rev. Canon Allison Reid Named Rector Of St. Anna’s Episcopal Church, New Orleans

The vestry of St. Anna’s Episcopal Church, New Orleans is overjoyed to announce that The Rev. Canon Allison Reid has been named our parish’s next rector. Canon Reid will begin her duties at St. Anna’s in early June. Canon Reid has served for the last three years as priest-in-charge of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Harvey, Louisiana and as Canon for Congregational Development of the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana. She received her Master of Divinity degree from the University of the South (Sewanee) in 2021. The election of Canon Reid was preceded by an approximately 18-month process within St. Anna's with the invaluable support of The Rev. Morgan MacIntire, Canon to the Ordinary to The Rt. Rev. Shannon Duckworth, Bishop of Louisiana, and included several rounds of interviews of multiple highly qualified candidates. For more details about Canon Allison and our process, please see below under Parish Transition: New Rector Search. As we celebrate this milestone in our parish history, we recommit ourselves to welcoming all God’s children – all! – and to continuing and expanding our vital mission work. Thanks be to God!

Special Thanks to Fr. Don, Interim Priest

We extend a special thanks to The Rev. Dr. Donald Owens, who has served as Interim Rector of St. Anna’s since August 2023, and his wife Barbara Owens. The parish owes a debt of gratitude to Fr. Don for his steadfast service and guidance as we adjusted to the retirement of our beloved longtime former rector, Fr. Terry. We deeply appreciate how he and Barbara made a home here at St. Anna’s and supported our many activities within and outside the parish walls.
