Taking a Catholic Gap Year means serving the Church and the world while exploring God’s purpose for you.

Going on a Catholic Gap Year helped me to define my faith, gave me a sense of focus and identity.  It also gave me time to volunteer and meet new people, like my mentor who was a Physiotherapist. That relationship ultimately put that fire in my belly to motivate me to consider opening up a physiotherapy clinic. – Robbie de Fleuriot, former NET Canada Missionary

Our generation has a deeper desire to be purpose-driven. We want to find more meaning from our work. Going on a Catholic Gap Year helped me clearly see God’s missionary call in my life. With mentorship and training from CCO, I learned leadership and found time to discern what the Lord was calling me to do for work, in my life, and for the Church. – Joseph San Jose, Catholic Christian Outreach Missionary
