The Main Thing

Launching College Students into Lifelong Catholic Mission

Mission Statement

To know Christ Jesus and to fulfill His Great Commission.

Our Approach


We win the hearts of college students, build them up in the faith and send them out into the world.


The Bottom Line

FOCUS is a nationwide outreach whose mission is to share the hope and joy of the gospel in colleges and universities across the U.S. Trained in Church teaching, sacred Scripture, evangelization and discipleship, FOCUS missionaries go out to campuses to meet students where they are, inviting them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and encouraging them to pursue lives of virtue and excellence. Through Bible studies, outreach events, mission trips and one-on-one discipleship, missionaries inspire and build up students in the faith, sending them out to spread the good news and to live out the Great Commission: Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations (Mt. 28:19).
