CCO and Simon Fraser University
Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO) is a university student movement dedicated to evangelization. We challenge students to live in the fullness of the Catholic faith, with a strong emphasis on becoming leaders in the renewal of the world. CCO was founded at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1988 after receiving the approval of the local bishop. From a humble beginning of four students, the movement now serves hundreds of students on several campuses through a wide array of programs and outreaches. In 1998 Brett Powell and his wife Andrea moved from Saskatoon to start the ministry's presence in Vancouver, here, at Simon Fraser University. Today, CCO SFU is a thriving team of students and lay missionaries, working with the Catholic Chaplaincy, located in the Interfaith Center, AQ 3200.
