FOCUS Campus Missions

FOCUS is a campus outreach that pursues college students with intentionality and love. FOCUS invites them into a growing relationship with Jesus and the Catholic faith, inspiring and equipping them for a lifetime of Christ-centered evangelization, discipleship and friendships in which they lead others to do the same.

FOCUS missionaries set out on a courageous journey to college campuses, eager to reach students wherever they are with the gospel message.

St. Ignatius supports FOCUS missionaries, Catherine Roveda (Georgia State University) and Conrad Collins (University of North Texas), as well as missionaries at the University of South Alabama.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is dedicated to feeding, clothing, housing and healing individuals and families in our community who have no where else to turn for help. As important, SVdP provides meaningful opportunities for volunteers to serve their neighbors in need with love and compassion.
