Hi, my name is Emily Engele!

I’m from Muenster, SK but now live in Saskatoon to attend the University of Saskatchewan. I am pursuing a degree in Education as well as a degree in Math with a Catholic Studies minor. I am very excited to be a part of the Belize mission trip this summer!

I was raised in a Catholic family and have always loved our faith. I was “that Catholic kid” in high school and embraced the title, enjoying the questions people would ask and the opportunity to share what I knew by way of apologetics. I loved the logic of the faith but lacked the personal aspect of it. My big turning point came at the 2018 CCO Fall Retreat. It was there that I learned to form a prayer life and really act on Jesus being at the center of my life. I realized that I could let my worries go if I worshiped the Lord for who He is, knowing that He is always so much greater than anything I will face.

After Fall Retreat, I began leading faith studies, became a student missionary, and started running youth groups in my home parish in Humboldt. My heart grew for those I was leading and ached for those I couldn’t yet reach. After reading about the Belize mission, my heart skipped a beat and I realized the incredible opportunity the Lord was revealing to me.

The Lord has such great plans for our lives and I am so blessed to be able to participate in this mission. However, we are not all required to travel the world to contribute to the great mission of evangelization. Your support, and especially your prayers, make all the difference. Please consider supporting me and my fellow missionaries in this next step of our faith journeys. Thank you for playing an essential role in sharing the joy of Christ with the world!

God bless,
