FOCUS - A Fast Growing Catholic Campus Outreach Expands Louisiana Footprint to Tulane

FOCUS - Fellowship of Catholic University Students, which as regular readers of this blog know I am big fan of has expanded their Louisiana Presence. With a substantial presence at the University of Louisiana Lafayette , FOCUS has now expanded to the premier private school in Louisiana. That being the very important Tulane University and their Catholic Student Center in the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

Curtis Martin who is the President and Founder of FOCUS has been recently named by Pope Benedict as Consulter to the Pontifical Council of the New Evangelization.

With the construction of the new Catholic Student at the Tulane Campus ( see New Catholic Center at Tulane becoming a reality ) plus the edition of  FOCUS on campus these are hopeful signs of an vibrant Catholic Faith on Louisiana Campuses.

FOCUS was recently profiled  by an evangelical magazine here recently and shows why are they are one biggest movements in American Catholicism right now.

Hopefully we shall see FOCUS expand even further in Louisiana .
