What We Do
Responding to the Great Commission in Matthew 28, CCO sends teams of missionaries to university campuses across the country. From Victoria, BC, to St. John’s, NL we step onto university campuses to seek out those that don’t know Jesus or don’t know him well enough. We believe the university campus is one of the most strategically important places to reach future leaders. Our strategy begins with outreach, where our missionaries build authentic relationships with students and seek opportunities to proclaim the Gospel and invite them into a dynamic relationship with Jesus and his Catholic Church. Our campus staff intentionally journey with students first towards an initial conversion and then towards growth as missionary discipleship through growth in holiness and mission. We call this Intentional Accompaniment.
As we journey with students, we equip and commission them to lead their friends. To support this, we work to create a culture of conversion and a culture of mission on campus. Using CCO’s 1-2-3-4 model of spiritual multiplication, staff and students effectively raise up new generations of leaders for the world’s renewal.
We also provide an active Catholic community on campus and the opportunity to travel the world on mission trips, conferences and retreats.
By the end of the university career, we launch students as missionary disciples ready to be leaders for the world’s renewal by putting into practice the attitudes, skills and knowledge they learned and used at university.
Through reaching university students in Canada, we aim to reach the renewal of the whole world.
