My name is D’Arcy and I am a student at the University of Ottawa, studying International Development and Globalisation. I’m from Mary Mother of God Parish in Oakville, Ontario. I am truly humbled to share with you that since travelling across Canada and to Rome with the the major relic of St. Francis Xavier (check it out at cco.ca/relic), I am continuing in full-time ministry with Catholic Christian Outreach as I complete my studies.

Since first encountering CCO when I came to uOttawa, it has been an exciting time journeying with the Lord, as He has revealed so much about His personal love for me and my identity as a missionary disciple. I went on a CCO Mission to Ireland in 2017, and in 2018, served as the Guardian of the Relic of St. Francis Xavier. These have been profound experiences of taking the opportunity to radically follow His call to proclaim the Gospel. I’ve been able to continue to live this missionary lifestyle every day as a student leader on my campus, and now working in CCO’s Stewardship and Development department, building relationships with the supporters of our movement and journeying with them as they share our vision of seeing young people’s lives being changed by Jesus Christ.

The beautiful thing with the relationship with Jesus that we are all invited to is that He never abandons us, showing us instead that He has marvellous plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11). Now He has shown me yet another step to take in order to follow His perfect plan for me. I can’t wait to continue on this adventure! While it has been a favourite quote of mine for many years, these words from St. John Paul the Great, the patron saint of young people, are becoming more and more real to me everyday, and are words that become real to all of us when we give God permission to be present and work in our lives:

“Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure!”
—Pope St. John Paul the Great

I ask you to prayerfully consider helping me by making a tax-deductible donation to my ongoing mission with CCO. I thank you in advance for your generosity and prayers – in particular for the young men at the University of Ottawa, that they will encounter God’s personal love for them and that they be raised up as men of exceptional character, multiplying missionaries for the renewal of the world.

We are full-time lay missionaries dedicated to the proclamation of the Gospel.
Join the mission.
