Hi,  My name is Mrs. Joanne Kanerva and I am the youth minister at St. Gabriel Parish.
I am married with a family and I have been active in ministry with youth for several years and have studied 
Youth Ministry / Chaplaincy at the University of St. Michael's College in Toronto.

I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to meet and help so many wonderful kids and their families, and I look forward to the continued growth and involvement of all our youth . My heartfelt  thanks to our Parish family for all of  your love and support.
                                                                                                                                                    love Joanne

" I assure you that whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it. Then He took the children in His arms, placed His hands on each of them, and blessed them."       Mark 10-15,16
