Hi! I am Pia Ocenar and I go to Mount Royal University and I am studying history, so I am kind of a history nerd/buff and I love it!(especially Canadian history) Of course I have other passions in my life which consists anything that involves the outdoors especially anything to deal with the gorgeous Rocky Mountains, my crazy animals, a dog and cat named Snow and Preston and of course my number one passion is God!

Before I got into CCO, my faith was not really a part of my life though I was raised in a Catholic home. During that time of my life, I was searching for something bigger than myself, felt like something was missing and everything that was the norm in an university lifestyle was not giving me the life I was looking for.

My first encounter with CCO was actually, Rise Up Vancouver 2016 and I did not know what CCO was all about, my brother just invited me to and I went. At that conference, my heart opened a little to God’s love but it was a year later in Rise Up Ottawa where I totally gave my yes to put him at the centre of my life and it was exactly what I was looking for in my life. Additionally, the relic of St. Francis Xavier was where my heart was set on fire to spread the gospel to others especially to other that know of Jesus but don’t know his personal love for them.

The Scotland mission would be the perfect place to spread the gospel and to support the St. Mary of the Assumption Cathedral to help spread and show the love that Jesus has for each one of us. The bible verse, that comes to mind is John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” God has come to give us the fullest life when we live it through him, and I want this for the people of St. Mary of the Assumption Cathedral and for myself to live even fuller and deeper in Christ.

Thank you for taking the time to read my bio and kindly consider to support me financially or through prayer.

God Bless,
Pia Ocenar
