discernment

or CCO, this year has been a time of becoming more fully ourselves. Core values became more pronounced. Our devotion to particular saints deepened. We experienced greater freedom that stretched our ministry. And it’s thanks largely to a treasure of the Church: Ignatian discernment.

F

It started as a response to a specific need; Andre and I were hearing from missionaries across the country who were struggling to hear God’s voice in their lives. They were struggling to make decisions, and sometimes mistaking other influences. They wanted to trust God, but couldn’t see the path to move forward in freedom. We sought advice from Bishop Scott McCaig, CC, a trusted spiritual advisor and member of our board, and he immediately responded, “Your staff need to learn how to discern spirits to get through this.” Bishop Scott’s influence led us to St. Ignatius’s rules of discernment. The rules are meant to be a practical guide for deciphering the will of God in our lives. Even though these rules have been recognized for 450 years, they’re not well-known by the laity. Our staff confirmed this; most of them had never been introduced to the rules. We focused last year’s staff formation on Ignatian discernment. Our teams learned the rules, discussed their relevance and applied them diligently. It wasn’t long before missionaries became more confident in discerning God’s will. It helped each of us

recommit to our core value of abandonment and living by providence. Soon, the results were everywhere! Individual missionaries felt greater personal freedom. Ministry on campus had clearer direction. Our recruitment season included resources based on these principles, and candidates responded with greater abandonment than ever before. Staff moved on to other opportunities with freedom and joy. St. Ignatius accompanied us closely in this time. How fitting, then, that his dear friend, St. Francis Xavier, will accompany us in early 2018 in the form of his relic from the Church of the Gesù. Thanks to a collaboration between the Archdiocese of Ottawa, the Society of Jesus and CCO, this famous relic will be with us for veneration at events across Canada. St. Francis Xavier is a patron of Catholic missions—what a remarkable opportunity for us to draw near to him. We now begin our 30th year of campus ministry, ready to launch into what’s next. Last year’s focus on Ignatian discernment makes each step forward steadier and more secure than ever. And with each step, we thank God for His unceasing goodness.

STUDENT TESTIMONIES

Nikki

While Nikki was at a women’s retreat, she had an encounter with the Lord during an evening of Eucharistic Adoration and received the healing touch of Christ deep in her heart. Since that moment of healing, Nikki has been growing in her faith. She has found her true identity in Christ, and she desires to walk with other young women on their journeys.

Before Isiah met Ryerson Catholics, he wasn’t practising his faith. He wasn’t even sure if he believed in God. After being around the community, participating in a faith study and growing every week, he decided to put Christ at the centre of his life. Following Jesus has transformed every aspect of his life.

daniel Daniel was worried about losing his faith at university, so he got connected to CCO through a friend. Through his involvement, particularly on the student executive, Daniel shares, “CCO not only helps you grow as a Catholic, but gives you the tools to evangelize and spread the message with others around you.”

James

Isiah

During this past year, James’s cousin was travelling to Ottawa for a CCO Adoration event, and James decided to go along. He was invited to rise in the middle of one particular song, and did so while singing, “I’ll stand, with arms high, heart abandoned.” It was at this moment that he opened up his heart to Jesus and put him at the centre of his life.

RISE UP

nybody at #RiseUp2016 in Vancouver would have a hard time forgetting the theme—#CalledByName. Each of the keynote speakers reiterated it so powerfully. It stuck.

Does anyone remember the mountain logo, though? That mountain looms large in my memory. Let me start by explaining how I saw Rise Up, because I had a unique view. I had the privilege of leading worship with a talented band at the conference, with the humbling perspective of leading more than 650 students in prayer. And our mountain moment was the night when students were challenged to share their faith boldly after encountering God’s love. The band asked Chris Keyes, vice president of CCO and a keynote speaker, to pray over us before we led worship. In prayer, he shared an absurd image: the band as mountain goats, skilled at navigating the mountain ascent. BY JOSEPH He saw us leading everySAN JOSE one up the mountain. We laughed hard when he said that. It didn’t sink deeper than that—we didn’t really know what it meant. As we began worship, I expected an experience like some of our other sets: an effortless time with a strong sense of God’s presence. Wrong. Leading worship that night felt, plainly, hard. I felt desolate. Doubts crept in about my abilities. Was the Lord working through us? My voice dried up; singing became physically tough. I was desperate to finish my share of the songs and leave the vocals to my co-leaders. Weren’t we supposed to be mountain goats? Wasn’t this supposed to be natural? Easy, even?

Then Rebecca began to lead. As soon as she sang the lyric, “There’s no place I would rather be, than here in Your love,” I felt the presence of God rush into my heart. It was a familiar feeling; I had felt it every time I attended Rise Up as a student. This was the sober intoxication of the Holy Spirit. I completely lost it—laughing, crying, sobbing. I didn’t care I was a blubbering mess in front of 700+ people. A realization struck me: we had reached the mountaintop. Slowly, surely, young people I had seen sitting and struggling in prayer rose to their feet and lifted their hands in worship. Later, I heard stories of massive burdens lifting from students’ lives. Huge wounds were healed. Mountains were moved. We were mountain goats, indeed. With God’s help, we had led the arduous route up the mountain. But we couldn’t stay there. Near the end of the conference, I said, during a set, “Look at everyone present here. Isn’t it amazing? Now think about who isn’t here, who could be here. God is calling them by name, too.” Even that night, students were mobilized and motivated to share their experience. Many were already texting people back home in the hopes of sharing this experience. God wanted us to struggle up the mountain like goats, like his sheep, only to go back down to bring more people to His presence.

missionary heart

Before he became a Franciscan Friar, Brother Diego was a CCO staff missionary from 2008 to 2011, working at the University of British Columbia, then CCO’s national headquarters. He went on three missions: Impact in Vancouver (2007), Rencontrez Jésus in Quebec (2008) and China (2008). As a friar currently missioned in Honduras, he was the

world. It is a heart that cares about the Great Commission, that every man, woman and child would have the opportunity to hear the good news of salvation. In 2017, CCO also sent missions

Why did you invite CCO to bring A mission team to Honduras?

Being on staff, my missionary heart was developed and matured over time; it’s the reason why I’m a friar. CCO really specializes in molding and honing that heart. When I went to Honduras, it became apparent right away there’s no Catholic presence on universities where we live. There are lots of opportunities; there’s a desire from young people to grow in their faith, but also to evangelize. And obviously, [deciding to invite a CCO mission team] took prayer and discernment. I knew if we were to do a mission, it was not something to be taken lightly—it should be a high-quality mission. And as I was talking with different people—not just CCO, but also with my own brothers—it was very clear that the Lord was leading us in this direction.

to Ireland, Mexico, Northern B.C., and Malaysia.


MISSIONS

What would you say to supporters who have made international missions possible?

First of all, I would like to thank them. I pray for them. I want them to know the money, prayers, whatever investment they put into this, really went to a cause that could not be any more concrete. It may not be material, but it’s a concrete spiritual aid to a country, a place, where there’s so much poverty; material and spiritual poverty both. I can assure them that real lives have been changed, for good. They’re part of this mission in a very real way.

How would you explain to people why it’s important for us to go international? How would you explain CCO’s heart for the world?

I think the Holy Spirit gives us a charism, and it’s not for us to keep. I strongly believe CCO’s charism has an international nature, a universal nature that is meant to be shared around the world. The charisms are gifts of the Holy Spirit; we cannot keep them to ourselves. It’s for the whole world. Yes, CCO was born in Canada and has a very strong Canadian character, but CCO’s charism is not just for CCO and it’s not just for Canada. Because again, this is the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Does anything else about the mission stand out to you?

I’ve been in Central America for more than three years and I’ve seen many mission groups come and go. I want people to know there’s something unique about CCO’s missions. CCO mission teams come prepared. Even if we don’t have anything planned for them, there’s this flexibility. And that happened to us; some things were cancelled, we had multiple vehicle issues, but then it did not affect the mission in a negative way. I want to highlight that in a very particular way— the preparation that CCO strives to make beforehand. It makes a contribution to the overall success of the mission.

How were you impacted by the mission?

I could talk to you for hours about this! Obviously nostalgic—I was a CCO student, I was a CCO staff, I was on several international missions—and it brought back a lot of memories. It was so refreshing and rewarding to see everything unfold, one glory story after another. And I really enjoyed working with [staff missionaries] Adriana, Cam and Mana. We had a blast. We would always find ourselves looking at each other and thinking, “Wow, this is happening.” It encouraged me in a way that no words can explain. It was incredibly life-giving.

a p m o c c a f The art o A single theme dominates a campus missionary’s many activities:

WALKING ALONGSIDE STUDENTS AS THEY GROW CLOSER TO CHRIST. When expedition groups travel ambitious terrain, they often invite local guides. Missionaries are like these elite mountaineers, showing students the way. Students still climb the mountain themselves; with God’s grace, they make their own progress. But they have the assurance of a confident and caring expert on the journey.

MINISTER THROUGH SCRIPTURE.

INTENTIONALLY INVEST IN THE RELATIONSHIP.

THE JOURNEY BEGINS WITH CONVERSION.

Missionaries are clear about their intentions, and the student can freely choose to participate in the relationship.

The missionary diligently presents Scripture, knowing God may use it to speak to the student.

SPEND TIME TOGETHER. Can be casual—as simple as getting coffee, playing sports, or serving together in ministry.

Evangelii Gaudium 174: The sacred Scriptures are the very source of evangelization.

PA R I S H L I F E

St Anthony of Padua parish

in Vancouver, B.C., found out about the faith studies when CCO’s Impact summer mission was in Vancouver in 2015. That summer, a team of mission participants kicked off faith studies in the parish. Ever since, a dedicated core team has been offering them to fellow parishioners. Here are a few perspectives on what the faith studies have accomplished in the faith of their parish community.

PARISHIONER, CCO CAMPUS MISSIONARY

PASTOR

PARISHIONER

FAITH STUDIES MINISTRY COORDINATOR

It’s been wonderful for helping people grow in the faith. It helps us break the silence of sharing your faith.

Since that study, my faith life has been changed forever. I really just became more convicted of my faith and my relationship with Christ.

For me, it’s amazing to see how the exact same faith study that was made for campus ministry is proving to be just as effective in a parish environment. It has set a tone of evangelization at the parish. It’s also provided an opportunity to empower leaders in our parish. At the end of the studies, all the participants are commissioned out into the parish, so we’ve seen an increase in leaders—some in faith studies, but also in other ministries. It has created a leadership pool for our parish.

12

It’s become the staple of our adult faith formation. I’m not aware of anything else that really takes you through a faith journey in a snapshot. It leads you through a faith maturing process in good time. It’s broad, but also deep—and it’s feasible for people to do.

The Grapevine | Catholic Christian Outreach | 2017

It wasn’t just me; the entire parish has absolutely gone in a totally great direction. When Fr. Justin first came to our parish, he wanted to make our parish an evangelistic parish with real disciples, and he identified the faith studies as the best way to get us to that point. And it really is that core piece that has gotten us to a different level.

It’s not a classroom; the sharing aspect has been very important. The way that the materials guide that sharing and combine Scripture with the opportunity to share is quite good. Tuesday nights are our faith study nights, and it’s something to look forward to in the middle of the week. It’s now part of the fabric of the community.


LEGACY GIVING

CCO currently has more than 9,000 active supporters. Many of these supporters have built a legacy of charitable giving over many years. To them, it’s natural to continue this legacy through a future planned gift—through legacy giving. On campus, CCO operates with a next generation mindset—we intentionally accompany students so they can become missionary disciples and reach others long after graduation. Legacy giving allows our supporters to embrace that same approach, offering a financial gift that will allow CCO to reach out on campus for generations to come.

The Andersons are eager to support CCO, and set up a planned gift once they found out it was available. As co-labourers in this important mission, we want to make sure our supporters know about all the options. When planned—or legacy—giving is mentioned, most people think of a gift in a will. That’s natural; it’s the most common type of planned gift.

There are other options: • Bequest a gift through your will. • Life insurance policy. • Gifts in kind. This could include real estate, art, investments, etc. cco.ca
