Admit it, you are tired of chips and salsa for your Bible study snack. I don’t blame you. It is fun once in a while, but every week? That’s a bit much. With a fresh year underway, I have 30 fresh snacks that are totally pin-able and sure to bring some new flavor to your adventures in Bible-Study-Land.

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.
