Meet The Rev. Russ Bohner, TSSF

The Rev. Russell (Russ) Bohner became the Rector of St. Anne’s Church on June 1, 2014.  A native of Delaware, Russ grew up in Newark at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, and he is a graduate of Wilmington Friends School and the University of Delaware.

Russ’ early religious formation came through his experiences with Christian  monastic communities, specifically with the Cistercians, Franciscans, and Jesuits.  From his time of living and learning in these communities, Russ developed his life-long love of Christian contemplative practice.  Upon graduating from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois, Russ was ordained priest and served for more than five years at St. Barnabas’ Episcopal Church in Wilmington, Delaware and then for six years at Christ Church Christiana Hundred in Greenville, Delaware.

Russ is married to Diane, a physician adminruss2istrator for Christiana Care Health System, and they have two children, Isabelle and Michael.  For fun, Russ enjoys sailing, riding bikes with his daughter, playing baseball with his son, and taking walks with his wife.  If you have questions or would like to speak with Russ, please contact him at
