Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure. – St. JPII
My adventure started young, as I have been Catholic my whole life. The story really gets good, however, in my teens when I started to take my faith in God a little more personally. I first truly encountered Jesus at a Catholic youth conference when I was 16, through Adoration and the sacrament of reconciliation. I experienced God’s love and mercy in a way that changed my life, and the adventure has only gotten more exciting with each passing milestone.
When I went to university I had no idea how I was going to continue living out my faith in a big, new city where I had no home church, and no community. I met CCO at Ryerson University in Toronto and this became my faith family. Through CCO I grew in my relationship with Jesus and heard the personal call to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Mt 28:19). My adventure with Christ then took me to full-time ministry.
I started out my career with CCO with 2 years of ministry in Montréal at Concordia University. In the pandemic year, I had the blessings of an online homecoming with the return to my alma mater, Ryerson, to continue the mission. The next milestone in the journey is an exciting one as I take on the role of Team Leader at Ryerson this year. As a student, my heart longed for my classmates and peers to experience the love of God. I feel incredibly blessed to now be in a position to oversee and grow the mission of inviting people to encounter Jesus at Ryerson. I am eager to see what great things God will do this year as the adventure continues. Thank you for your support and prayers for our ministry!
