Hello! My name's Arianna, and I'm a FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

After spending two years on campus at Ramapo College of New Jersey, I am now serving students and missionaries at the Denver Support Center (DSC) with the FOCUS Missions team. FOCUS Missions takes students on domestic and foreign mission trips across the world, serving and encountering Christ in the poorest of the poor. This is so often an amazing opportunity for students to get out of their comfort zones and to recognize the spiritual poverty that their own lives might hold. This past year, we launched 145 trips across 50 countries! Praise God!

My Story

Pope St. John Paul II once said that “life with Christ is a wonderful adventure.” And so it has been! I fully entered the Catholic Church my junior year of high school, and my life has never been the same. In college, my faith was nourished by the amazing community and friendships I found at the Boston University Catholic Center. These relationships pushed me to grow in virtue and in a deeper love for Christ. As a missionary, I’ve been able to use these good gifts and graces to help lead students closer to Christ, relying on prayer and my teammates to sharpen myself and others into saints.

My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus, and I’m excited for this new and beautiful way to serve on His mission! 

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I served on campus, and now on the administrative side of things. I’m excited for all those who will be joining me in this work! If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
