Julia Lopez

Hi friends! My name is Julia and I am serving at Assumption University! 

Where I serve

I currently serve as a missionary for Assumption University, a Catholic university in Worcester, Massachusetts. I am excited to help bring students to a deeper relationship with the Lord like they’ve never encountered before! 

My Story

I grew up Catholic my whole life, but when I reached college, I left the faith. Then one day in college at the University of North Texas (GMG!), I was invited to a FOCUS conference. I saw thousands of college students pursuing a relationship with Jesus. I wanted that same relationship.  

I realized how lost I was in college, and the “college experience” wasn’t satisfying. I came back to college with a new desire, to pursue a relationship with Jesus. I reached out to a dear college friend, Morgan, who was starting her journey as a FOCUS missionary. I asked her to guide me to a deeper and personal relationship with Jesus.  

As I continued my faith journey in college with Morgan, I realized how important it was for college students to have this relationship with Jesus. I realized how full life was when Jesus is at the center. I knew I couldn’t keep my relationship with Jesus for myself. I remembered how empty I felt when I started college, I could only imagine how other students felt. 

“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” -St. Catherine of Siena 

This quote has given me so much joy, God has put the desire in my heart to help make Himself known to other college students. Now I have been blessed with the opportunity to help students have a relationship with Jesus and fill their hearts with the love of Christ.
