I grew up in Trenton, Ontario, with two loving parents and two younger brothers. When I went to university, a CCO missionary shared with me that we are called to be in a personal relationship with Christ. I was utterly shocked. How was it that I had been Catholic all these years and never known this? Almost a year later, while before the Lord in Eucharistic Adoration, I heard a voice say, “It is time”. I let down the walls of my heart and opened the door to Christ. I made an adult decision to invite Christ into the centre of my life, accepting him as my Lord and Saviour.
As the Missionary Support Raising Manager, I have the responsibility of overseeing the personal support raising efforts of all CCO missionaries. My ministry is dedicated to equipping other missionaries with the attitudes, skills, and knowledge they need to thrive for a lifetime. I love that we get to invite people to partner in this great mission of evangelization. I love being able to help onboard new staff into the CCO missionary experience and equip them with the skills they need to succeed. I love CCO’s supporters and helping our missionaries develop the resources to steward them well.
