My joy is to support and to lead FOCUS s Lifelong Mission Team. My team is expanding the great work that FOCUS has done for the past twenty-five years, carrying the method of discipleship modeled by Jesus Christ into parishes, communities and workplaces across the United States.
In college, like many of us, I began to wander from my faith. I just didn’t find it relevant. But I kept feeling Catholic guilt and a void whenever I missed Mass. (Praise God for Catholic guilt!) Finally I was at a crossroads. Either Catholicism was true or it wasn’t, and I needed to stop this lukewarm commitment to the faith. And in the months that followed, God in his abundant mercy drew me straight into the heart of his church – the one he founded when he handed Peter the keys. And he’s continued to draw me deeper ever since.
Today I am awed to serve in Christ’s Great Commission and FOCUS’s amazing work of bringing souls to Jesus Christ. Pray for me, and pray for my team as we encounter parishioners who are just like I used to be – committed to the Church, but who don’t know the fullness that she offers, or the Person who’s waiting to satisfy their deepest longing.

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 our mission. 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.
