Some of the details for this mission:
- While in Malaysia, we will have the opportunity to go on pilgrimage to Malacca, which was very significant place for St. Francis Xavier, who used it as his “launching pad” for mission to other parts of Asia
- We will be attending and volunteering at a student conference in Penang. We will be connect with some high level Catholic leaders from Malaysia, training them in CCO’s evangelistic materials and methods.
- We will then travel to Johor Bahru where we will be working on campus with some Catholic students who will be in session.
- We will then travel to the island of Borneo, the city of Kota Kinabalu. We will connect with more Malaysian students and parishes, primarily teaching them how to use CCO’s Discovery faith study.
Good news! English is very widely spoken in Malaysia, so there is no need to worry about a language barrier if you participate in this mission. Previous CCO mission experience, or on campus leadership experience is an asset.
