Where we serve

This year, God is calling us to serve college students through Mary College at Arizona State University. This program is an extension of the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota, that provides Catholic Studies classes and formation to students at ASU and in the Phoenix area. We are so excited to contribute to the Catholic community in Arizona and work alongside Peter's alma mater!

Our Story

Peter: For a number of years, I've felt a calling to evangelize in a very real way. It wasn't until my senior year of college when a FOCUS missionary on my campus asked me to consider joining FOCUS. After a month of prayer and discernment, I determined that FOCUS was how God wanted me to live out the calling that I had felt for so long. I wasn't able to truly put God at the center of my life until college, when I encountered young people who joyfully lived out the faith every day. I hope that I can be a joyful witness of God's love to college students who are establishing the path that they will take in life.

Natalia: At North Dakota State University, I joined a FOCUS bible study at the beginning of my sophomore year. My bible study leader, a FOCUS missionary, had a huge impact on how I viewed my faith, my prayer life, and even God himself. When Peter first mentioned he was thinking about becoming a missionary, I immediately thought "Of COURSE! You'd be great that that!". When the question arose of whether or not I'd like to join him on mission, it was the second easiest "yes" I've ever said (after, of course, him asking me to marry him). I'm overjoyed to be joining Peter on mission this year as a part time missionary and part time student (shout out to my two classes I have left at NDSU this fall!). I hope to lead some new women to Christ this year and be a witness to what it means to live out a joyful marriage.

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us through this mission. Those who join our team are fundamental to the success of the mission, and in their own way answer God's call to evangelize. If you are interested in joining Team Foley, feel free to contact us! We are happy to pray for any and all intentions you have.
