Caleb Taggart

That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

– 2 Corinthians 12:10

Where I serve

I serve at Michigan Technological University up in the Upper Peninsula. You may find me intensely thinking at a chess board, out on the bike trails, or enjoying a board game with friends. I am thrilled to begin a new journey going further north through FOCUS as one of their missionaries! It’s an honor to enter headfirst into this amazing apostolate, and I’m excited to see how my life will transform through this complete surrender to the Lord’s will!

My Story

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a degree in Computer Science as well as a Psychology minor. I have had the blessing of being a Catholic my entire life, and I had a passion for the faith and a strive for the Lord rekindled within me through FOCUS while in college. I now have the high honor of serving as one of the many missionaries scattered throughout the world striving to give back everything that I have been given. I am excited to see how the Lord is going to use me as I enter into my second year at Michigan Tech!

Your Impact

You have the honor of joining me on this mission through financial support and your prayers. Many of us in this day and age may not be able to give of ourselves in the faculties that a FOCUS missionary is expected to, but you, through your financial and spiritual support, can work through me to bring the truth and the life of Christ to those who are present on the college campus. I pray that you prayerfully discern your potential financial support towards this beautiful apostolate and towards the mission I have had the honor of entering. May God bless you abundantly in your discernment of potentially supporting my mission financially!
