Where I serve

I am thrilled to be serving in my second year at Mount St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, MD. 

My Story

In my junior spring, I had the opportunity to attend FOCUS' SLS 2018 conference in Chicago. There, God made practical a desire that had been on my heart since the fall of my junior year. There were a group of Catholics on campus that God wanted to reach but the avenue had not been created for them to receive God's everlasting love. This group was my fellow Black Catholic individuals on campus who attended Mass every single week and wanted a place to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ but did not feel comfortable in the space provided. I ran from this call for a long time because I did not feel empowered or knowledgeable enough to accomplish such a task as being a vessel for Christ. I was still struggling with my faith at the time and was not sure how God could use a broken person like myself to reach out to a group that yearned just as much to love and understand. However, the support system from my Black choir on campus and the loving missionaries made sure to constantly speak truth into my insecurities. Eventually, I answered God's call and saw how the Holy Spirit slowly but surely changed my heart and the hearts of those who both attended and heard of the Bible Study that was created and meant for them to encounter Merciful Love.

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 serve on campus. 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.
