My Story

When I started attending college at the University of Michigan, I didnโ€™t really have many close friendsโ€“let alone any friends I could truly live the faith with. After failing miserably to live my freshman year of college as a faithful Catholic alone, the COVID-19 pandemic plunged me into a dark period of loneliness and apathy, spiritual desolation and silence.

By divine providence, this eventually led me to get involved with the Catholic Student Evangelization (CSE) group on campus, where I encountered a group of solid, young Catholics who were strong in their faith and their pursuit of holiness in a way that convicted me to strive to live to a higher standard that was beyond myself. While I initially thought I had only joined a club, they eventually entered into, and even became a part of my life. Not only did I begin to grow in my spiritual life, but I began to realize for the first time what it looked like, felt like, and how important it was to have a loving community to share life with, and fight the good fight of faith with, together.

That is why I chose to become a FOCUS missionary.

The reality is that the loneliness and apathy that I experienced was not a unique, one-off occasion. Students on college campuses all across the country are crying out and are hungryโ€“ for greater purpose and meaning in their lives, for a true sense of identity and belief, and to be known, seen, heard, and loved. Too many young people are searching for answers to big, important life questions in the wrong places and in the wrong things.

Having personally felt both the need that exists on college campuses, as well as the impact of the solution that is Jesus Christ and the faith of His Catholic Church, lived through a Catholic worldview in community and fellowship, the mission and vision of FOCUS to โ€œmake disciples of all nationsโ€ (Mt 28:19) is something that personally resonates with me.

I have no other choice but to simply respond to the Faith, Hope,ย and Love which I have received, to strive to share with others at least a glimpse of what I have received from God through Jesus Christ & His Church. That is what is meant to be a missionary disciple. Saved people save people.
