Growing up in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, I attended mass with my family every Sunday. However, I had never truly encountered Jesus or known Him in a personal way until I moved to Saskatoon for University. My first encounter with Him was through my parish’s youth ministry leadership retreat. Although I had recently been to confession for the first time in many years, it wasn’t until a time of affirmation where I was able to fully receive God’s love and mercy. I felt Him speak directly into my life through another team member, who said to me, “you are worthy”. This is where my relationship with Christ was able to begin.

The following semester, the youth minister at our parish introduced me to Catholic Christian Outreach on campus and helped me sign up for a Discovery faith study. Through the faith study, I was introduced to who Jesus was and why He should be so important in my life. Not only was it a relationship with Jesus that I had been missing, but the authentic community that CCO provided me with. These Catholics that I had let into my life challenged me to grow in my faith and demonstrated what it looks like to have Christ at the centre of all aspects of your life. I can now confidently say that I know Jesus in a personal way, and I want to help others experience that same life-giving joy and freedom that I did!

With the help of St. Francis Xavier, I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve as a campus missionary at Mount Royal University. I am beyond excited to be able to introduce students to Jesus and accompany them as they journey deeper into a relationship with Him. I have great expectations of how the Lord will use me to build up His kingdom within the university campus.
