College apostolate expands to 83 campuses, including Berkeley
July 03, 2013
The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS), an apostolate dedicated to the evangelization of college students, is expanding its outreach to 11 new colleges this fall, including the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Southern California.
“We are most grateful to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the Diocese of Oakland, and the chaplains at these schools for their invitation to join them in outreach,” said Joe Hensler, the organization’s vice president of collegiate outreach.
During the 2013-14 school year, 361 full-time FOCUS missionaries will serve on 83 campuses.
The apostolate was founded in 1998 by Curtis Martin, a consultor to the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization. Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia serves on its board of directors.
