New On Staff- Olivier Coutant

Hello Everyone!
My name is Olivier (pronounced O-leave-yay) and I am thrilled to be coming on board as Youth and Young Adult Minister at St. Wenc's! I am Canadian by citizenship, French and Italian by heritage, and I'm excited to be coming to Omaha to serve the young people of the parish. I spent last year in the United States serving on a missionary retreat team with NET Ministries--the experience was so positive that I decided to take a leap of faith and see what else God had to offer me in America. I am seminary-educated, having spent three years in minor seminary under the direction of Benedictine monks who have been, to this day, some of the most influential people in my life and faith. I am grateful for the adventures God has led me on the this point, and I look eagerly at what is to come! Some of my interests include basketball (I'm open to cheering for Creighton), photography, guitar, and eating at good restaurants. I'm excited to meet you, God bless you, and see you soon!
