Hi, my name’s Miguel.

I’m a student at Simon Fraser University studying criminology because I want to be a criminal… just kidding! Now that you got a little bit of a laugh in let me tell you a little bit of myself and why I’m doing what I’m doing.

The who: I was born and raised Catholic, and I’ve always been active in my parish ministries growing up to varying degrees. However, the reason for my involvement also varied from pleasing my parents and friends, or to satiate my personal need for accomplishment. It wasn’t until I met CCO that I was exposed to the fullness of the love of Christ for me and His desire for my heart. With that new-found knowledge and understanding, my willingness to say yes to God’s will grew, and I’ve wanted to say yes to everything He has asked of me. Oh boy, has He asked for a lot, but with every yes, He has given me so much more, which leads to me to my why.

The why: My desire to say yes to Jesus has lead me to grow in my desire to evangelize. This desire to spread the Gospel has to lead me to opportunities I never thought I would have, from being in the student executive for CCO SFU to leading people in faith studies on campus and in my parish. As I continue to journey, I’ve been called again to be abandoned to God’s will and say yes to His mission. What is the mission?

The mission: I’m heading to New York City and partnering with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and a few other ministries to evangelize and share the Gospel.

The ask: I ask that you keep me and the rest of the mission teams in your thoughts and prayers as we go through this journey and as we continue to be abandoned to God’s will. I also ask for you to discern supporting the mission in any way.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and my mission.

God bless,
Miguel A
