Two All Saints Catholic School Alumni and long-time parishioners McKenna DeBruyne and Allison Rice are excited to share an opportunity to join them in Catholic evangelization through an organization called FOCUS. McKenna and Allison have dedicated two years of their lives to being Catholic FOCUS missionaries at the University of Colorado, Mines and the University of Maine.
What is FOCUS?
FOCUS stands for the Fellowship of Catholic University Students and is the largest Catholic college outreach program reaching out to students on over 180 different college campuses. The 800 FOCUS missionaries are trained in outreach and evangelization to bring Christ into a student’s world. Their job occurs on campus – in the gym, the cafeteria and coffee shops, at athletic and Greek events – meeting students where they are. From there, they engage them in friendship and invite them into a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. They mentor students on how to incorporate Jesus’ teachings into everyday life.
Studies show that those who practice their faith through college are significantly more likely to remain active after graduating. The message of FOCUS is a message of hope: not only do missionaries encounter lost students and invite them back to faith, but these students in turn reach out to their peers, their brothers and sisters, their parents and grandparents. Lives are being changed and souls are being saved!
