Joanna Leiserson | Canon Joanna Leiserson Canon Joanna Leiserson The Rev. Canon Joanna Leiserson came to Christ Church Cathedral in October 2005 from Spokane, Washington, where she served at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Millwood Community Presbyterian Church and St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. It was at St. Stephen's, while Christian education director, youth ministries coordinator and communications director, that she was ordained to the priesthood in January 2005. Her experience includes coordinating children's ministries and Christian education in three churches for over a decade before moving to Cincinnati. In addition to parish work, Joanna has also been active in diocesan and national church ministries for Christian formation and anti-racism. And she served on a 19-person national church strategy team for education, PEALL (Proclaiming Education for All), which was charged with a comprehensive inquiry into Christian education, theological education and faith formation in the Episcopal Church. Currently she is a reader for the General Ordination Examinations of the national church. Joanna has written a three-year children's church school curriculum for children, ages 3 to 12, for the Episcopal Church. And as an anti-racism trainer for the Episcopal Church, she is dedicated to promoting reconciliation. In addition to her master of divinity degree from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Joanna holds degrees in political science and history from the University of California at Berkeley. She has three grown children: Kathleen, Julian, and David.
