Two More Catholic Universities Get FOCUS Missionaries

The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) announced the week that it has established its presence on ten more campuses in the U.S., including two more Catholic university campuses.  The organization now serves 58 universities around the country. The two new Catholic university campuses to partner with FOCUS are Ave Maria University in Florida and University of Mary in North Dakota. From the FOCUS press release:
 “All Catholics have been commissioned by Christ to ‘Go, therefore and make disciples,’ and it’s an honor for us to serve the Church in this way,” said Curtis Martin, president of FOCUS. “We give thanks to God for yet another fruitful year as we continue to work with not just the students on campus but the clergy and those who partner with us financially and through prayer. Slowly but surely, the Church’s commitment to the New Evangelization grows stronger every year.” ... In response to the Church’s call for a “new evangelization,” FOCUS seeks to communicate the gospel to young adults in a dynamic and culturally relevant way.  The missionaries are typically recent college graduates who devote two or more years of their post-collegiate lives to reach out to their peers on campus. Through genuine friendship and personal investment, FOCUS missionaries invite students into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the fullness of life found in the Catholic Church.
