Profile of FOCUS leader Curtis Martin

Catholic World News - December 26, 2011

The Denver Post has profiled Curtis Martin, president of the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) and a recently named consultor to the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization. More than 260 FOCUS missionaries evangelize on 58 college campuses.

Martin, who sees “a hunger and an openness among young people to learn about Catholicism,” says that “Out of the ashes of this terrible scandal that rocked the Church, men are entering seminaries who are men of faith and action, who are entering for all the right reasons. They are part of a tremendous renewal within the Church.”
