Catherine Bailey

Hi!!! My name is Cate Bailey, and I am a FOCUS missionary!

I am so glad you are here

“Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed. Each of us is loved. Each of us is necessary.” – Pope Benedict XVI

Where I serve

I am so excited to serve at Colorado State University in Fort Colins, CO with my fiancé, Brandon! I am joining an incredible team of missionaries, and I cannot wait to meet the women I have the joy to walk with! I am looking forward to seeing the Lord move on CSU’s campus.



My Story

My life was changed in college when I encountered Jesus Christ through the authentic friendship of my Catholic community of women. My best friends saw the good in me and loved me like Jesus. The way these women chose me, built me up, and taught me how to love, inspired to me seek a personal relationship with Jesus through daily prayer and the Eucharist. Through the healing love of Jesus, I was set free from shame and insecurity to love and to be loved.

I desire college students to experience this love that sets them free, the infinite and unconditional love of God. I am excited to make a gift of myself in love and to help students flourish by reminding them of their identity, dignity, and the authentic love that they were created for. Every human person has a deep longing to love and to be loved. Jesus Christ witnessed in His own life the deep investment in a few in order to reach the ends of the earth. In my story, I was changed by an intimate community of Christ-centered friendship. College students especially are deeply in need of life-giving friendships that will encourage them to pursue holiness and to share the hope and joy of eternal Communion.

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 am so blessed by the generosity and prayers of all of those who support me. I know our sacrifices for the sake of making disciples for Christ will have an eternal impact. If you are interested in partnering with me for the mission to reach souls for Jesus, please reach out to me! I would love to schedule an appointment. It would be an honor to share this mission with you.
