I am the youngest out of three boys and grew up in a faithful Catholic family that placed an importance on prayer and going to Sunday Mass. During high school, I read a book called “Conversation with Christ” where I came into a personal relationship with Christ. I was amazed of God’s love for us and I felt called to serve him through sharing this great news with others.

I was involved with CCO during my entire time in university with multiple events, faith studies, retreats and had a fantastic experience growing as a leader. It was so meaningful seeing lived changed on campus. Through being involved with CCO, I realized that the desire God put on my heart was the same as the desire this movement has for university students.

Going through Ignatian Discernment, I received many consolations showing me that God was calling me to become a missionary with CCO.

I am going to be a campus missionary at the University of Saskatchewan. I am excited to help the community in Saskatoon grow, especially since this is where CCO was founded so many years ago.

Please pray for me and my support raising during the summer, and for the people of Saskatoon that they come to know the joy that Christ brings us.

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