We give thanks to God for you!
From all of us at FOCUS, a heartfelt thank you. Each of you is courageously answering God’s call to enter one of the most critical mission fields in the world, and what you do could not be more critical. May God bless you!
Since FOCUS’ beginnings in 1998, our apostolate has been used as an instrument for the conversions of thousands of college students across the country. In our work on campus and through our conferences and mission trips, we continue to hear amazing stories of how God is transforming lives for Christ and His Church.
But none of FOCUS’ efforts would be possible without the invitation and support of chaplains and campus ministers on campus.
FOCUS’ outreach is designed to coordinate with the chaplain's and campus minister’s current campus programs. Our missionaries’ goal is to meet students where they are on campus — in the dorms, on the sports fields, in the student union — and bring them into the life of the Catholic campus community.
Campus ministers often work to meet the needs of the students who come through the doors of the Newman or Catholic Center. In this way, we accomplish together the same goal of helping students encounter Jesus and the fullness of the Catholic faith. FOCUS also trains students to go out on campus to their peers, allowing the reach of the campus ministry to stretch even further across campus.
We are eager to partner with you. Let's work together to reach souls.
We would love to connect with you to talk more about this potential campus expansion. Please feel free to contact us here: Bring FOCUS To Your Campus
Chaplains and campus ministers can also reach us anytime at [email protected].
A Message from our Founder
In Their Own Words
“If you’re looking for hope, look to FOCUS. If you’re looking for the future of the Church, you’ve found it in FOCUS.” His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York
“No one does a more dynamic job reaching college students for Christ than FOCUS.” Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia
“FOCUS is one of the best examples of the New Evangelization today, letting loose the power of the Gospel for the transformation of the world. Through their work on campus, they are forming our future leaders, so that these graduates will not just go on to be lawyers, teachers, and business people, but Catholic lawyers, Catholic teachers, and Catholic business people who will impact society, and the world, by spreading the fullness of truth found in Jesus Christ and His Church.” Most Reverend Robert Barron, Aux. Bishop of Los Angeles
“I was consistently amazed by the college kids who gathered together seeking to live their Catholic faith boldly and to share in the New Evangelization.” Father Peter Nassetta, Chaplain at James Madison University
“From day one, I knew that FOCUS had to be integral to the evangelization of the 5,000 Catholics at Eastern Washington University.” Father Paul Heric, Chaplain at Eastern Washington University
