FOCUS in Ireland
In the fall of 2016, FOCUS launched its first ever international efforts by sending two teams of missionaries to Austria. In 2017, at the request of local bishops who were eager to utilize our model of evangelization, teams began serving in Southampton and Dublin. Currently, there are 21 missionaries serving five universities across Austria, Germany, Ireland and the UK.
Our goal in sending FOCUS missionaries to these European campuses is to raise up disciples and missionaries who can, in turn, evangelize their peers. Inviting university-aged men and women deeper into their Catholic faith can spur a spiritual and cultural transformation not just in Austria but across Europe.
