I came to university lukewarm about my faith, but what I saw in the CCO missionaries at Queen’s was a passion and desire to know Jesus and make him known like I had not seen before. Over my four years as a student, the Lord opened up to me, not only in how deeply He desired to know me, but how important it is for others to know this, and how I can be a part of that. I am grateful that I have been able to continue to make that call known through my own work with CCO!
I am a missionary on the Finance team, working in our National HQ in Ottawa. I love that I get to see and hear about so many young people placing Christ at the centre of their lives, and sharing in the joy of it with so many people–students, other CCO staff, and supporters. Through the work that we all do, and the opportunities in our own lives and in our parishes, the Lord is inviting all of us to live a truly missionary identity!
