Catholic Christian Outreach




Young Catholics cannot hope
to weather the storms
that come at them


Our Focus

University students are a strategic age group.
These are our future leaders.

  • Future Engineers

  • Future Educators

  • Future Priests

  • Future Parents

By focusing on university students, CCO desires to see
not only that young people come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour,
but also for them to radically affect our world.

Our History

Pope John Paul II

Blessed Pope John Paul the Great's call for all Catholics to participate in the New Evangelization.

André and Angèle

Catholic Christian Outreach was started by André and Angèle Regnier in response to Pope John Paul.

First Campus

First outreach takes place with students at the University of Saskatchewan in the fall of 1988.

11 Campuses in Canada

The movement now serves hundreds of students on eleven campuses through a wide array of programs and outreaches.

CCO Tomorrow

CCO continues to expand with a growing Rise Up Conference, an increasing number of staff, and a growing number of mission opportunities (both domestic and international).

Our Mission

Catholic Christian Outreach is a university student movement dedicated to evangelization.
We challenge students to live in the fullness of the Catholic faith
with a strong emphasis on becoming leaders in the renewal of the world.


Through faith studies and on-campus outreach we lead students to accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour, and to a personal relationship with Him.


Our campus missionaries are committed to discipleship, leading students to grow in holiness and to engage in mission.


We believe that every student involved in CCO can be a leader. So we challenge them to be evangelistic: to lead their own faith studies and to take initiatives in their lives and spheres of influence.

Our Strategy

A) Disciples Making Disciples

The principle of spiritual multiplication shows us that to reach the world with the Gospel, we must do more than just bring people to conversion: we need to build “multiplying disciples.”

B) Leaving it up to “Professional” Evangelists

To reach the whole world, we could be tempted to focus on events at which large numbers of people gather to hear the Gospel message and respond.
