Priest of the Archdiocese of Denver and national chaplain for Denver-based FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students), Father John Lager, O.F.M. Cap., was interviewed by America magazine this week about his work with FOCUS and how the Catholic campus ministry is growing.
“There are presently about 15,000 college students involved in our program on the college campus, of which over 11,000 are involved on nearly a weekly basis,” Father Lager told interviewer Sean Salai, S.J. “Many of these students were among the 9,500 people who attended our five-day SEEK conference in early January. These are students who are growing deeper in their faith, learning to live a life of prayer, and growing in the virtues.
“By 2022, FOCUS anticipates graduating 75,000 alumni, who will then enter into parish life,” he added.
