Hello! My name is Nolan, and I’m in my second year at Queen’s University, majoring in classics. I enjoy playing hockey, reading and hanging out with my friends. I am a recent convert to Catholicism, beginning my Catholic journey in 2020 and getting Baptised and Confirmed this past Easter Vigil. The Catholic faith has become the center of my life, and it defines me utterly. I am so blessed to have people in my life who have helped me grow in my faith. I found CCO through Newman House Chaplaincy on my university campus. Taking faith studies and building a Catholic community has been such a key part of my conversion and my faith, and I am so grateful for the community I am a part of. Among other things, I am now leading faith studies, so I can share the joy and peace that I have found in Jesus Christ with others.
Why Do I Want to Be On Mission?
One of the biggest regrets of my life is not becoming Catholic sooner. Being able to receive the Body and Blood of Christ is a feeling beyond any other, and I want to do my part in helping others experience Him. I believe that by attending World Youth Day, I will have the opportunity to be a tool of the Holy Spirit, to accompany and guide others towards Our Lord. Going on mission with many other young Catholic men and women will help me grow in my own faith, which in turn will help me be a better witness to Christ. There is no higher calling than spreading the Gospel, in any way that we can. As Our Lord says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.”
