Welcome, the Rev. Jane Milliken Hague!

Dear community of St. John’s,

It is my great pleasure to share with you the good news that we have hired an interim Associate Rector to serve at St. John’s. The Rev. Jane Milliken Hague has accepted the job and will be returning “home” to the DC area to be on staff here through next summer.

I believe Jane’s presence and ministry gifts will be a blessing for us all at St. John’s. She has expressed to me how thrilled she is to be joining us. Her first day will be Sunday, August 25. Please join me in welcoming her.

God’s peace,


About The Rev. Jane Milliken Hague

The Rev. Jane Milliken Hague has a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service (BSFS) from the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and earned a graduate degree from Virginia Theological Seminary. After working in business – first at IBM out of the old offices at 18th and K streets NW, and then as a professional gardener (she started Garden Grooming, a successful gardening business) – Jane turned her focus back to her love for the church.

She managed the Welcome Table at the Church of the Epiphany for three years, and was ordained in 2011. She was Associate Rector at St. Margaret’s in Annapolis, MD for five years and Associate to the Rector at St. Thomas Church, on the campus of Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, for two years.

Being an avid fan of the Washington Nationals is just one of the reasons Jane is thrilled to return to the DC area. She has two sons: one lives in Washington, DC with his wife, and the other is a middle school math teacher at the King’s Academy in Amman, Jordan. She loves to hike and is a beginner in golf.
