Youth Director - Antoinette Gravel-Ouellette

Years ago I was one of the founding members of Samaritan House Ministries and currently I facilitate parenting groups for a parent child coalition. I also work privately with individuals one on one for healing and am a distance ed student with the University of Manitoba. I am a married, mother of 4 adult daughters, 3 adult step-son and 14 grandchildren and 2 great children. I started attending Knox’s United Church about a year ago to bring my grandchildren (well some of them). When one of daughters and grandchildren lived in Rivers we attended the Rivers United Church and I taught Sunday school. Now that they live in Brandon we were looking for a spiritual community in Brandon; we really connected with the Knox beliefs. I love to learn and grow, and believe in supporting our children to take a deeper look at life and the meaning of life, and to know we were all born for a reason. I explore that daily with different practices.
