Mark Anthony Mallari

“Modern society is drowning in the sorrows of human passions and it is distancing itself from every ideal of love and peace. Catholics, we and you, must bring the breath of goodness that can only spring from faith in Christ.” 

-Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati

Where I serve

This is my fourth year serving as a FOCUS Missionary! I am the current Team Director at University of California, Los Angeles. Being a missionary the last three years has been one of the greatest joys of my life and I am so excited to continue serving the Lord in this way. 

My Story

Being a missionary has been a great way for me to respond to God's call. I am confident in his plan for me and merely desire to follow him to wherever He leads me. My hope for my time as a missionary is to be able to lead others into an intimate relationship with Jesus, so that they too can know just how amazing His love is. I was born and raised Catholic, and have always heard about how, "Jesus loves you" but never really felt what that meant. It was just another overused saying that I would hear every Sunday homily. Not until college, when a FOCUS missionary really walked with me in my faith and showed me what it meant to have a real relationship with Jesus did I experience the very real and transformative effects of Christ's love through his Church and the Sacraments.

Your Impact

As a FOCUS missionary, I am called to serve students on college campuses. But I'm not called to do that alone. I need your help as well. We are called to rely on each other as brothers and sisters in order to accomplish the plans that God has set before us. I ask that if this mission is something that speaks to your heart, that you pray and consider helping fund me so that we can change hearts together. Nothing I do on campus is a result of my own merit, but rather a collaborative effort between myself and you on my support team. Without you, and without Christ, I can't do anything.

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.
