The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) has one mission: to know Christ Jesus and fulfill His Great Commission. Since 1998, FOCUS missionaries have invited college students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church, inspiring and equipping them for a lifetime of Christ-centered evangelization, discipleship and friendships in which they lead others to do the same. Through Bible studies, one-on-one discipleship, conferences and mission trips, missionaries walk alongside students in their journey of faith, encouraging them to live out lifelong Catholic mission.
date, more than 20,000 students have been involved with FOCUS. Within this number,
more than 600 students and missionaries have made decisions to pursue Catholic
religious vocations. By 2022, FOCUS hopes to have 75,000 alumni transitioned into
America’s 17,000+ Catholic parishes to continue the work of evangelization. To

FOCUS Share exists to engage
parishioners in the New Evangelization and Christ’s Great Commission and to
inspire hope as they hear about Catholic missionary activity. The FOCUS
Share Coordinator reports to the Director of FOCUS Share. The coordinator’s
main responsibilities are to obtain speaking assignments for the FOCUS
Share speakers’ bureau at parishes as well as oversee other aspects of the
program. The FOCUS Share speakers’ bureau is made up of priests who are
friends of FOCUS who celebrate Mass at parishes across the country,
bringing more awareness to the work of FOCUS.
