Anthony Dalida

Hello! My name is AJ Dalida and I am a missions specialist with FOCUS Missions! My wife’s name is Madison and we are living out in Denver, CO. We have one son named Anthony Dalida III.

Where I serve

I serve with the FOCUS Missions team out in Denver, CO. Here, I will be training and coaching missionaries to carry out successful mission trips, serving the poor in charity and truth while helping participants to come to a deeper understanding of their own relationship with Jesus. We send missionaries and students all over the country and globe to live out Jesus’ Great Commission!

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age. – Matthew 28: 18-20

My Story

High school is when I started to get into my Catholic faith but it was not until the summer after my freshman year of college I found a new depth to my faith. Inspired by holy people in my life, I wanted to take the next step in my faith. My faith grew from an internal personal faith to an outwardly giving faith.  I began living out mission on my campus at James Madison University with the FOCUS missionaries. This then lead me to live mission full-time with the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS).

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
