After meeting CCO when I came to uOttawa as a student in 2016, I chose to have a personal relationship with Jesus and place Him at the centre of my life. 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, in 2018, I served as the Guardian of the Relic of St. Francis Xavier, and in 2019 spent two months in St. John’s, NL forming local parishioners as missionaries. These incredible experiences affirmed that I am made to be a CCO Missionary! I loved continuing to live this missionary lifestyle every day as a student leader on my campus, and then working in CCO’s Stewardship and Development department before completing my studies. It’s been so exciting to see God’s plan for my life unfold.

These words from St. John Paul the Great, the patron saint of young people, have become so real to me ever since I gave Jesus permission to be at the centre of my life and all that I do:

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

Since graduating from school, the adventure continues for me! I have the great privilege to serve as a campus missionary at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. I have an incredible team and am blessed to proclaim the Gospel in such a beautiful corner of our country.


Please pray for the students at the University of Victoria, that their hearts would be open to the awesome joy of a relationship with Jesus! In particular, I ask for prayers that great missionary saints would be raised up through our ministry at uVic.
