André Regnier

Workshop Speaker

André Regnier was born on November 10, 1960 and raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. He attended the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon where he wrestled at the national level with the varsity team while completing his Bachelors of Psychology. Along with his wife Angèle, André founded Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO) in Saskatoon in 1988. In 2015, André and Angèle were awarded the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Medal for distinguished service to the Church. This is the highest medal that can be awarded to laity by the Pope.

André has led countless international missions, including ones to the Philippines, Poland, and Uganda. In Uganda he helped to establish on several campuses an ongoing CCO presence that still remains active today. In 2016, he and Angèle led a CCO team at World Youth Day (WYD) in Krakow. Working with the International Centre for Evangelization (ICE), the team shared 1 million copies of The Ultimate Relationship booklet in 10 different languages and evangelized people from all over the world who attended the WYD festivities.

He is currently working on his Masters in Theology from the Augustine Institute. He has written three books: ‘Catholic Missionary Identity’, ‘Five Tenets to Renew the World’, and most recently, ‘Clear and Simple: How to Have Conversations that Lead to Conversion’.

André is a motivating and engaging speaker who give talks both nationally and internationally. He is especially sought-after to present on discipleship formation in dioceses and parishes alike. His desire is to draw people to a deeper conversion to the person of Jesus Christ, and to be a catalyst for them to embrace the Church’s evangelical mission.

André and Angèle live in Ottawa and have five children and four grandchildren.
