It’s Friday night, and you’re going out with some friends. You just got done covering six Adoration slots (because you’re Catholic), and now you want to go be the token Catholic friend and witness to the fact that you can love Jesus and still enjoy yourself at a bar. You’re the image of temperance... obviously.

Back in the late 90’s, when I was in college and Blink-182 was just hitting main stream, “pop” punk rock was the greatest music known to man…in my opinion. From NOFX to Pennywise to MXPX, I loved it all. The Warped Tour was the greatest show on earth. All was good in the music world.

“I still don’t understand why you decided to work for FOCUS for two years before applying to medical school.”
This is the question that I kept getting from many people after I decided to become a FOCUS missionary. “Medical school is long and very expensive,” many would say, “so why would you want to wait an extra two years to begin?” Some people advised me to look for an engineering job since I studied biomedical engineering at the University of Virginia. “That way, you could have some extra money to go towards medical school tuition…especially if you like math and science so much. I just don’t get the connection between FOCUS and medical school.”

Since the pontificates of Pope Paul VI and John Paul II, the Roman Catholic Church has been commissioned to engage and embrace the world with God's message of love once more with ‘new methods, new ardor and new expression.’ It has come to be phrased, 'the new evangelization.'
For FOCUS, this means meeting college students across the nation where they are and challenging them to examine the meaning and purpose of their lives. Through personal relationships and friendship, we offer college students the true peace and fulfillment they seek in the good news of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Catholic faith, inviting them to answer His calling in their lives.
