About me

Hi everyone! My name is Victoria. I’m a fourth year university student, doing a major in Marine Biology. I’m from Honduras and moved to St. John’s, NL in 2020 which is when I became involved with CCO at MUN. This past year, I have had the joy of serving on our student exec team. Whenever I’m not hanging out on campus, I enjoy photography, scuba diving, and coffee (especially with my family or friends). Moving abroad, I thought the only reason for which I came to Canada was to pursue my degree, but I had no clue of everything the Lord had in store for me. Although I grew up in the Catholic faith, it wasn’t until I got involved in CCO that I embraced the richness of our faith and a personal relationship with Jesus. I was drawn by the joy and authenticity of other young Catholic adults who knew their identities as beloved children of God.

Why do I want to be on Mission?

The CCO family has taught me how to share my love for Jesus with others. As a leader in our community I’ve had the great opportunity to witness the ways in which He changes lives. This brings me an indescribable joy.

I can’t wait to entrust what I’ve learned as a leader in CCO to other university students in Uganda to equip them to proclaim the gospel and build up multiplying missionary disciples.

While Catholic Christian Outreach seeks to honour the expressed preference of each gift, I acknowledge that my gift is a gift to the ministry of Catholic Christian Outreach and will be used by Catholic Christian Outreach in a manner that it believes will best advance its charitable purposes. If my preference changes, it is my responsibility to inform Catholic Christian Outreach.

CCO is a registered Canadian charity (#13782 4363 RR0001) and income tax receipts are issued in February of each year.
