Entering the vocation of marriage in the Christian faith is a sacramental unification of two persons into one (a symbol of Christ’s union with His Church). This unity causes both of our missions to merge in a very real and tangible way. The substance of our day-to-day transitions from two individuals living separate lives to knowing, serving, and loving God through community with one another. This is distinct in that we don’t only live together, but actually are integral for each other’s individual missions by the nature of the sacrament.
Going into August, Priscilla has begun a new phase of mission with FOCUS. She has begun working full-time for the 153 Initiative (see John 21:11), which emphasizes Jesus’ call and outreach to people from every socioeconomic status, culture, and race. Priscilla will also be the mentor for FOCUS’ new campus missionaries in Monterrey, Mexico. Patrick entered Texas Tech HSC School of Medicine in Lubbock as a student pursuing an MD (Doctor of Medicine).
Both of our missions will be integrated into the prayer, discussion, and lived experience of the other. In this, we are looking for support of our unified mission through prayer, encouragement, and financial support.
FOCUS 153 is an initiative within the Fellowship Of Catholic University Students that seeks to equip every aspect of our apostolate to effectively reach all ethnic and racial demographics on campus and beyond.
As a missionaries, our greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Our lives have been transformed by Jesus and we want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. There are not enough people out there speaking and inviting college students to live for something more. They are the future of this generation. These souls need to know that they are unique and deeply loved by God, and that Jesus is thirsting for them to receive His love.
When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. We’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us as we serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We’d be honored to share this mission with you.
