Jean Beneteau

Pastoral Minister

I have been blessed to be part of the Assumption Pastoral team since Sept. 2017, and am happy now to be invited to serve as pastoral minister for the Windsor Heritage Catholic Family of Parishes. I have been married for over 30 years to my beloved Paul, with whom I have raised our two wonderful sons Andre and Marcel. Now the family includes Andre’s lovely wife Kristen and their beautiful daughters, Lia and Fiona. (Grand-parenting is awesome!)

Family, faith and parish life have always been what makes me tick! I have been involved in ministry since my own confirmation. After many years of parish involvement, and receiving a BSW from U of Windsor, I started my career as the Program Coordinator for the House of Shalom Youth Center in Amherstburg, and went on to Big Sisters Association as the west end caseworker for about 6 years. This experience was good preparation for parish ministry.

I served as the Coordinator of Youth Ministry for the community of St. John the Baptist in Amherstburg, Ontario from 1991 to 2012. Also, I was a member of the faculty for the Canadian Certificate in Youth Ministry Studies from 2002-2014, instructing courses in Pastoral Care, and Prayer and Worship with youth.

Next I held the position of Youth Ministry Formation Specialist at the Institute for Catholic Formation at St. Peter’s Seminary in London from 2009-2014. While in this position I worked with parishes on the formation and ongoing work of Youth Commissions, and guided parish leaders to practice family based and intergenerational ministry. From 2014 -17, I assisted parishes in various ways with the development of family and youth ministry, facilitation of retreats, and facilitation of the “Called and Gifted, Discernment of Spiritual Gifts and Charisms” program from the Catherine of Sienna Institute. My passion is intentional discipleship and forming disciples for the mission to which they are called.

I completed a Masters in Religious Education from Assumption University in 2000 and hold a Bachelor of Social Work and a Certificate in Youth Ministry Studies.

My personal passions include family life, church life, reading, music and solitude. I feel so blessed to journey with the people of the Windsor Heritage Catholic Family of Parishes as we strive to follow Jesus and respond to his personal call to his mission in the world

I was born and raised in Windsor where I grew up in the parish community of Christ the King. After marrying my husband we moved to Lakeshore where we have raised three beautiful children in the Parishes of St William and Good Shepherd.

My background is Social Welfare Work, Child and Youth Work Mental Health and Addictions Counselling. I started my career almost 30 years with the Roman Catholic Children’s Aid Society Parish Outreach Team. Over the course of time, I have worked as a Consultant in early intervention programs for children aged 0-6, a Counsellor at Hiatus House for 12 years, Program Manager at New Beginning Youth Services and as Supervisor at the Regional Children’s Centre. Most recently I was the Coordinator of the Hotel Dieu Grace Community Crisis program as well as the HDGH/CMHA Crisis and Mental Wellness Centre.

I served on the HDGH Ethics Committee for 5 years and taught at St.Clair College in both the Child and Youth Work and Chemical Dependency Counselling programs.

I feel that I have always been called to work with families and individuals in our community and in my religious life. I serve as an Extraordinary Minister of the Holy Eucharist to the homebound community and as a greeter within my Parish.

I am very happy to have the opportunity to serve as Coordinator for the Windsor Heritage Catholic Family of Parishes and hope to continue to serve God and our Community to the best of my ability.

I was born in Croatia and immigrated to Windsor as a young child with my family in 1970.

I attended St. Clair College and graduated with a diploma in Interior Design. From there I developed my own interior design business while raising my three young daughters. As life changed, so did my career paths. I returned to school, graduated with a Horticulture degree, and while working in the industry, started my own landscaping business. As a strong advocate for education and learning, I returned to St. Clair for the third time. I graduated from the accounting program where now I have the pleasure of contributing to the Assumption Parish and community as the Financial Secretary for Windsor Heritage Catholic Family of Parishes.

My greatest accomplishments are my three daughters; raising them and watching them grow into ethical, virtuous, and respectable young women has been a privilege.
