What is FOCUS?
FOCUS is a Catholic college outreach and discipleship ministry with a presence on 100 campuses across the United States. FOCUS stands for "Fellowship of Catholic University Students." Its missionaries commit to a minimum two-year, life-changing experience where they serve Christ by meeting college students on their level, where they live (dorms, intramural fields, student unions, Greek houses, etc.) and demonstrate God's love through friendship, Bible studies, fun activities, mission trips, and amazing national conferences. You can find out more at FOCUS.org.
St. Stephen's is excited to announced that we will be hosting, not four, but FIVE FOCUS missionaries this coming school year! From left to right they are: Molly Schmitz, Julie Lefort (Team Leader), Jose Vijil, Ben Pluta, and Catherine Schultz. Though they are assigned to UAB, they outreach to Samford and Birmingham Southern as well.
