My Story

Christ met me where I was at the end of my freshman year of college.

Growing up a cradle Catholic, the truth of the Gospel never actually reached my heart until I encountered a group of young men and women striving to live a virtuous life while getting their degrees. I entered college with no desire to grow in my faith, I was complacent. On the days that I did go to Sunday mass, I would quickly exit the building once it was over to avoid talking to anyone. God used my already developed passions like music to draw me into community and ultimately worked through FOCUS missionaries to lead me on a year long conversion. Now my goal is simple: to meet students where they are at, invite them into community, and show them the love and life that Christ has for them.
