Anthony Cirillo

Hello! My name’s Anthony and I’m a FOCUS Missionary!

Where I serve

I serve as the Senior Recruitment Manager for FOCUS’ South Area.  I help young men and women discern and become FOCUS missionaries.

Before serving as a recruiter, I was a campus missionary and team director for seven years.

I served at George Mason University and the University of Cincinnati where I had the honor of investing in and mentoring young men in one of the most formative times of their lives. Together with my teams, we established FOCUS’ apostolate at the University of Cincinnati where it continues today.

My Story

I was raised Catholic and blessed with a solid foundation of faith.  After my freshman year of college, the Lord profoundly impacted my life on an airstrip in Madrid during the final night of World Youth Day.  I experienced the personal love of Jesus kneeling in the dirt in front of Him truly present in the Eucharist among two million other pilgrims.  That was the moment I chose to go all-in with my faith and strive to put God in the center of my life.  My life continues to be transformed by Jesus through prayer, the Sacraments, and virtuous friendships.  I want nothing more than to be a saint and invite my friends into an abundant life in Christ.

My wife, Elizabeth, and our 3 kids live in Cincinnati, Ohio.  We invest in the local missionary teams and apply what we did on campus to our parish and neighborhood.

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. I’d be honored to share this mission with you and have you on my team.  If you are interested in joining my team, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment my email is [email protected].
