Katherine O'Gara

Hey! My name’s Katherine. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

“Faith must become a flame of love within us. A flame which burns in our lives and is propagated to our neighbors. This is the essence of evangelization.”- Pope Benedict XVI

Where I serve

I am a Donor Relations Specialist at the Denver Service Center. Together with the rest of our amazing Donor Relations Gift Operations Team, I have the privilege of serving our donors and fellow missionaries everyday. We preform behind-the-scenes working assisting donors with their gifts and processing donations so our missionaries can receive their paycheck. Our work allows campus missionaries to focus completely on evangelizing and serving college students.

My Story

I was blessed to be introduced to the life-giving love of God from a young age. Through the Eucharist and the sacraments, I have experienced the beautiful and radical love of God. It is through this relationship that I have been able to navigate the more challenging parts of my life. I was first exposed to FOCUS when I attended their national conference in 2018. Now, I have the privilege of sharing in FOCUS’s mission of evangelization everyday!

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’m blessed to work with an amazing team, and I would love for you to join! 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.
