Pastoral Charge Officers
Our minister, is Catherine Oxenford-Grant. Catherine started with us on January 1, 2018.
Catherine was born in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario to English parents, Derek (deceasd) and Miriam Oxenford. Her younger sister, Josie Duguay still lives in “the Sault”. Catherine was raised in the Anglican church but joined the United Church of Canada in 1986.
‘Cat’ has a classical musical education including vocal performance, piano and organ from the Royal Conservatory in Toronto. She worked as a music teacher and professional church musician for many years, as Music Associate at Parkdale United Church in Ottawa from 1981-1997 and Minister of Music at Wall Street United Church in Brockville from 2001-2014. Cat also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religious Studies from Carleton University.
Feeling that music was no longer enough, and in response to what she calls a “spiritual nudge” Catherine entered seminary at Queen’s Theological College in 2011 and completed her Master of Divinity degree in 2015. She completed a 24-month internship ministering to the three churches in Rideau Pastoral Charge. During her internship, Cat completed an intensive 9-month program in Pastoral Care and is a member of the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC). She will be ordained at Annual Conference in April of this year.
Catherine has been married to Kurt Grant for 27 years. Kurt is recently retired from the Canadian Armed Forces. He is an avid fly-fisherman and motorcycle enthusiast. He now writes full-time with his next book expected out in the fall of 2018. Kurt is also an amazing cook for which Cat is extremely thankful! They live in Brockville with their two cats and dog. Cat’s hobbies are perennial gardening, reading, watching old movies and decorating. She is a member of the Brockville Community Choir.
