Ana Petrak was born in small place Boljevci (Serbia) in 1974. She has studied theology in Bratislava. She is married with two children and she is considered a steady and professional priest.
Mrs. Petrak said she hoped to meet expectations of believers and her church. She added she understood that her ordination would seem quite `revolutionary`but eventually people would get used to it.
She said she wanted to cooperate with other Christian churches in Belgrade and Serbia.
29.000 people in Serbia are considered to be members of Slovakian Evangelican Church in this country. This church has 25 priests in Serbia and five of them are women.
Within most of Protestant churches women can be ordained as priests and bishops. The Ortodox and Catholic church do not allow women`s ordination.
