“Surely there’s a bigger purpose to my life!”
I was not fulfilled in my athletic and academic achievements, nor in my career ambition or desires of popularity while at university. Then I encountered CCO one afternoon and signed up for a faith study to explore my Catholic faith.
I learned that God loves us personally and that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. I also understood that Jesus desires an intimate relationship with me. Over the next few years, I gave God more room in my life.
Eventually one day I took a leap of faith and invited Jesus to be the center of my life. I found the ultimate truth, happiness, and love in a life-giving relationship with God. His love fulfilled me in ways that achievements, other relationships, and ambitions could not.
There is more: a life with Christ.
My passion is leadership and evangelization — that young men and women would encounter the love Jesus wishes to offer them. I am working at the University of Ottawa as an interim team leader for this purpose.
Jesus changes lives. One year I worked in Montreal at Concordia University. I met a young man named Elias who was searching for community. He accepted my invitation to a faith study and went on a journey of conversion that semester. He felt God’s love in a tangible way and shared his newfound faith with friends. Elias eventually became baptized into the Catholic Church and I had the privilege of being his Godfather.
ONGOING PRAYER REQUESTS
Please pray for our team and student leaders at the University of Ottawa. Please pray that each of us would become another Joseph and Mary—responding to the call of sanctity this very moment, with the great dreams of raising up missionary disciples.
