Hi I’m Mary Keane! I’m a beloved daughter of God serving as a FOCUS Missionary!

“Jesus wants me to tell you again, how much love He has for each one of you- beyond all you can imagine.”

– Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Where I serve

God has called me to serve at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA! Fun fact, I originally wanted to go to Mason for undergrad but its clear now that God said “not yet!”. I am excited to have the opportunity to share the gift of God’s love and His desire for personal relationship with the students on campus- He has an abundance of love to give!

My Story

Although I grew up Catholic, it was only senior year of high school when I realized that God wanted a personal relationship with me and that He had been seeking me my whole life. The confusion of COVID and missing out on a lot of good things that year lead me to pray more and talk to God about what I wanted in my life. I started to visit Him in adoration and receive Him in the Eucharist at daily Mass. He gave me the grace to make this a habit throughout my college years and in doing so helped me grow in love for Him. Now I see it as something I could not live without. So, as I started to think about post-college plans, I asked God how I could serve Him and attempt to return the infinite love He gives me. I knew the FOCUS missionaries on my campus and I saw the way they brought students to Christ. God increased my desire to answer this same call of mission He gave to his first disciples, “Go and make disciples of all nations”(Mt 28:19). I truly believe God wants to use this mission to help me encounter Him deeper and invite others to do the same!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I said yes to relying on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. As missionaries we have the privilege of walking with students on their journey toward Jesus. Although not everyone can do this in a direct way, supporting the mission and making it possible for me to reach students is just as important! 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.
