The Reverend Liba Straznicky
The Reverend Liba Straznicky joined St Peter and St Paul’s in January 2013 as an honourary assistant, sharing in celebration of the Wednesday morning Eucharist, the monthly healing service and Sunday services. Prior to this she was the assistant at Faith Anglican Church in Embrun. Liba’s background is in the accounting field but in 2011, after 17 years in that field, she returned to school and received her B.Th. from St Paul University. In the spring of 2012 Liba joined with several like-minded colleagues to form the ministry of holistic healing called Living Water, Healing Streams. In September 2012 she was ordained to the priesthood in the Church of God. She finds joy in running and attending concerts with her husband Paul; most Saturday mornings find them sharing breakfast at a downtown Ottawa bakery with their 2 children, their spouses and 5 grandchildren.
