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.
