Focus Conference in Texas - January 2-6, 2008

For those of you in the Grapevine, Texas area - or those willing to travel, there will be a FOCUS Conference well worth exploring for college and university students.

FOCUS is the Fellowship of Catholic University Students. I have seen members of this group talk on EWTN and have heard them on Catholic radio. Folks, this is a solid Catholic movement within college campuses. They are Eucharistic, Marian and bent on evangelizing others on campus and in their missionary work. From the several interviews I've seen and heard, including this evening on EWTN's Life on the Rock, it is inspiring to see young Catholics as enthusiastic about the true faith as these young people.

FOCUS has a blog called Luceat, which I have added to my blogroll at the bottom my sidebar. Explore the posts to get an idea of just how well anchored this group is in authentic Catholicism.

Read through their page on FOCUS Spirituality. St. Therese Lisieux is their patron saint. Their brand of spirituality is yielding vocations. In fact, Mother Assumpta Long from nearby Mary, Mother of the Eucharist Dominicans will be a speaker at the conference in January. In fact, here is a list:

The highlighted keynote speakers include Fr. Benedict Groeschel, Jeff Cavins, Alex Jones, Mother Assumpta Long and Curtis Martin.
