Sponsor a CCO Missionary - Sherley Vo - Bringing the #Gospel to Students!

Sherley Vo (1200x675)


"As a university student, my involvement with Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO) had a deep impact on my faith. Through the faith studies and various events, I grew in my relationship with Christ and I gained a desire to share our beautiful Faith with my peers. This desire to spread the Gospel led me to go on a summer mission with CCO, and it was there that I felt called to full-time ministry as a campus missionary - sharing the saving Gospel message with university students on our campuses throughout Canada.

 I ask that you prayerfully consider joining my financial and prayer support team so that together, we can reach the future leaders of our society with the saving message of God's love. Thank you and God bless you. Yours in Christ, Sherley Vo"


This is my first year as a campus missionary at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. I reach out to students and guide them into an encounter with our Lord Jesus and help them grow in their relationship with Him.


The highlight of being a campus missionary is being able to share the Gospel to university students, and see their desire to know and encounter the Lord in a deep and personal way. When students come to know Christ, and want to live their lives for Him, I am reminded again and again, of how God longs for His children to come back to Him. It really is a celebration of the return of a dear family member who has been away, and it is as Jesus tells us in the parable of the lost sheep: "Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’" Luke 15:6.


Every year, CCO’s RiseUp Conference is attended by hundreds of university students all across Canada. The first RiseUp I attended was in 2012. Being surrounded by people my age who were on fire for our Faith and so in love with our Lord was overwhelming, yet attractive. It was here that my love for our Catholic Faith came alive and the first time I made the commitment to fully put Christ at the centre of my life. Lives are changed each year at RiseUp and by the end of the conference, staff and students not only feel encouraged, but eager to get involved in and share our Faith; leading faith studies on campus, inviting friends to join CCO, go on a mission, just to name a few.


I would like to ask you to pray for the students on our campuses throughout Canada; that they may have the opportunity to hear and accept the saving message of the Gospel and that our missionaries and student leaders continue to deepen their relationship with Jesus and to have the courage to share His love with others.
