As a campus missionary with CCO, you can share the saving message of Jesus Christ with countless students, disciple believers to spiritual maturity, and train others so they “will also be qualified to teach others” (2 Timothy 2:2). As a growing university student movement we have had many requests to expand to other campuses in Canada. The possibilities are unfolding like never before!
We are looking for mature, faithful, self-motivated, positive, disciplined, and well-rounded young adults who have a zeal for Christ and His Church and a love for souls. The CCO Campus Internship program is the beginning of a new career as a full-time Catholic lay missionary on the front lines of university campuses. Each year the Campus Internship Program begins at the end of August and lasts for eight months. At the end of this time, successful campus interns are invited to serve for two or more years with CCO.

For your internship year, CCO gives a stipend that can cover approximately half of a modest salary. CCO's monthly internship stipend is $800/month. All interns will be required to support raise at least another $950/month before August 1st to supplement the half of their salary paid through the stipend. The exact details of each individual intern’s support raising situation will be worked out in consultation with the Human Resources Department.
