CCO and the University of Calgary
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. CCO action began here with Impact Calgary in 2010. Students from all over Canada came to parishes in the Calgary diocese to spark excitement about the missionary identity of each Catholic. In the fall of that same year CCO Missionaries set up shop on the University of Calgary's campus. Today, CCO Calgary is the source of Evangelistic renewal in the Diocese.
