I was blessed to be brought up Catholic in a family that valued the faith. I knew God existed, but He was distant and impersonal. Going into university, I wanted to know more about my faith and where God fit into my life.
I joined CCO in my first year and I was struck by the authentic joy that the missionaries on my campus possessed. During CCO’s Discovery faith study, I learned that we are all created to have a personal relationship with God. Jesus desires to be at the centre of our lives and He waits with eager anticipation until we give Him our hearts. I responded to this invitation and placed Christ at the centre of my life at a CCO event called “The Summit.” It is a night of Eucharistic Adoration. When I gave my yes to Christ, I was filled with an overwhelming sense of peace, love, comfort, and joy. I was reassured that I would not lose any of the fun that I had in my life and He was not going to take anything away from me that I did not need. My identity as a daughter of God was restored. I realized that He saw me, knew me, and loved me.
I am very excited to be working on the Finance team in our National Headquarters in Ottawa. This position allows me to serve the supporters of the movement as well as our campus missionaries.
