I was born and raised Catholic, but I still didn't really know my faith. So after returning from a church retreat in Brazil after high school, I decided to join Catholic Christian Outreach. What struck me was that despite the differences between our club’s members, we are united by our personal relationships with God.
As an international student, this club has been like a family to me. Our members really care about one another and are always pushing one another to grow and succeed. Being a member of CCO has pushed me to get to know God even better and for that I’m eternally grateful. In some ways all university students are lost and unsure of where they are going to end up. CCO has helped me to navigate my university experience in a way that fulfills me. During my time with the club, I’ve grown in every possible way and have experienced firsthand, the beauty in giving to others.
