The Reverend Dr. Libby Gibson, Rector

The Rev. Dr. Libby Gibson was called as Rector in the summer of 2012, after serving as Senior Associate Rector at the Church of the Holy Comforter in Vienna, VA and as an adjunct faculty member at the Virginia Theological Seminary. At the seminary, Libby taught courses in Medical Ethics, Contemporary Anglican Theology, and Prophetic Preaching. While in metropolitan Washington, D.C. Libby regularly worked with an outdoor ministry with the downtown poor called Street Church and was privileged to regularly celebrate the Eucharist at the Pentagon. Prior to seminary, Libby worked as an administrator and adjunct faculty member at the University of Virginia’s Center for Hospice and Palliative Care. Her doctorate in religious studies focused on end-of-life issues and Libby has a deep passion for working with families during this sacred and tender time. Libby has four children (Sophie, Phoebe, Teddy, and Charlie), two delightfully naughty Pembroke Welsh Corgis (Lizzy and Maggie) and an adorable Shih Tzu (George), two cats (Camilla and Christopher), and lots of chickens (who do have names… email if you’re interested!)  In addition to spending time with her children and animals, Libby loves yoga, running, exploring the beauty of God’s creation, reading, knitting, biking, traveling, gardening, and is learning the art of weaving Nantucket baskets.
