Fellowship of Catholic University Students

Newman is so fortunate to have among us these FOCUS missionaries (Fellowship of Catholic University Students) here at UMass for the academic year.  Their role while "stationed" at Newman is one of invitation...inviting students to a closer relationship with God through the programs at Newman, the Mass, Holy Hours, & Bible studies.















We pray for them as they journey with our students 
in prayer & evangelization.
