Perry Kieftenbeld, a horticulturalist by trade, got involved with the Church in the Sturgeon Region as her five children started getting more drawn into the Church's youth activities.
In 2001, she was hired as pastoral assistant and youth minister at St. Peter's Parish in Villeneuve. The church has three mission parishes in Calahoo (St. Catherine), Mearns (St. Charles) and Riviere Qui Barre (St. Emerence). The four parishes in total have about 400 families.
