Sophie Albert

Hello! Sophie here! I’m a FOCUS missionary. May I be a monstrance for Christ!

Where I serve

God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve as a campus missionary at Iowa State University! I am thrilled to meet many students on campus. You’ll find me hanging out at the Newman Center, taking walks on campus with students, or cheering on the CYCLONES with the new friends I will meet there! I love any adventures outside like hiking, running, kayaking, and relaxing in the great outdoors! I am passionate about prayer, scripture, the sacraments, and I love to talk to others about how God is working in their lives. I am in love with Jesus and His true presence in the Eucharist and I cannot wait to meet others in Him. The Lord is truly blessing me in this adventure as He draws me ever closer to His heart. May I be His vessel to bring others closer to Him as well. I cannot wait to see what God has planned for all of us at ISU (:

My Story

I was blessed to be raised in the Catholic Faith. I grew immensely in my faith during college especially through prayer, the sacraments, spiritual direction, and the beautiful community there. My authentic friendships rooted in Christ have been vital to my faith journey! 

I also attended FOCUS Summer Projects in Estes Park Colorado where I spent a whole summer learning about the faith while serving at the YMCA of the Rockies! This experience radically changed my life and is where I truly came to know and love Jesus Christ as my love and friend! See the crew below!

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to be the hands and feet of Christ on campus to serve and love the students there! Our Lord greatly desires a deep relationship with each person. His love for each of us is unfathomable. I want nothing less than to lead other’s to His love outpoured in every moment from His Sacred Heart. My life has been transformed by coming to know Jesus more intimately and I now live with a joy that can be found nowhere else. I hope to share my story with students and help them know that they were created for joy in Christ as well! 

“It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me” – St. Paul

Your Impact

I am not on this mission alone. 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 bring Christ to others and spread the gospel. 

I’ve been blessed with incredible people who have joined in my mission. 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. You are in my prayers always. May God bless and keep you always!! 

Come, join me in this adventure. To the heights!!!!
