This summer has been all about change for me - graduating from university, moving to a new city, starting a new job, and just finding myself in a whole new environment. This was the perfect opportunity for a fresh start to my faith life. The last few months of university were certainly the most challenging months of my life. I found myself scrambling around for time to devote to my faith life and I felt trapped in a negative drama-filled environment that was just killing my faith. I was hurting deeply on the inside. It was at this moment when...

This summer has been absolutely incredible for my relationship with God. In my community, I have been given the opportunity to take on more of a leadership role, which has led me to develop a different aspect of my faith. What I have realized in my new role is that while leading, you not only experience God working through you - which is an amazing feeling in itself - but you also witness God working through others. Witnessing this has not only reminded me of my adoration for these people, but it has also reminded me of how easy it...

By Gigi Labranche God this summer has given me the chance to reflect on my life and has taught me patience. Since summer started, finding a second job has been the only thing on my mind until recently. Through stressing, I had lost faith, had doubted Him and as a result have had a gap in my prayer life. In talking to CCO staff and fellow friends, I realized not praying won't do me any good and that my relationship with God needs to be re-defined. In praying once again and giving the Lord my trust and revealing to Him...

“Every sinner has a future, and every saint has a past.” This is a quote a friend sent me a couple days ago that really stuck with him and I can say it really stuck with me as well.  We are all called to be saints and life is going to be rough and difficult at times, however this reminded me that even saints had rough pasts. So far this summer I know that God has been working in my life in many different ways. My only problem is hearing what he is saying and doing it. I know he...
