Thursday Thoughts...FOCUS

Linking up again for Thursday Thoughts, this week with Jaime, Meredith and Dani!

Earlier this week, I got the opportunity to attend mass and a prayer breakfast, put on by FOCUS, which is the Fellowship of Catholic University Students. I was active in FOCUS when I was in college and it was such a great organization to be part of to help me learn more about my faith and grow in my faith also. While in FOCUS, I took part in mass, bible studies and other activities. 

This prayer breakfast was held to talk about the New Evangelization and how we can all spread the good news of the Lord in our lives. We had some wonderful speakers at the breakfast, including our Archbishop, a couple of priests, a current FOCUS missionary, the leader of a Catholic bible study, and the wife of the founder of FOCUS. It was so awesome to hear all of them speak about their own experiences and their encouragement for those of us attending! 

From the breakfast, I learned and was reminded that I need to spend more time in prayer and reading scripture every day in order to learn more and be able to share about my faith!

I'm so glad I got to attend and am so thankful for everyone in FOCUS and all that they do, it is a wonderful organization! They are now active on 74 campuses across the country!!

Are any of you familiar with FOCUS? If you interested in learning more about them and to see what campuses they are involved at, check out their websites here: http://www.focus.org and http://focusequip.org. The websites also have a lot of great resources to learn more about the Lord, Scripture and your faith!

  2. I am Methodist and it bummed me out that my university was more focused on the Baptist and Catholic religions than mine. But I did attend with friends throughout the years and eventually I found out that my church wasn't as involved as the others and that is why. But now I hear they have more of a voice so that makes me happy.
