.- The Fellowship of Catholic University Students, a college campus outreach program focused on bringing students to Christ through Bible studies and personal relationships, will host a national conference over the holidays in Orlando, Florida.

FOCUS hosts a national conference every two years, and past conferences have attracted in excess of 3,000 students. Featuring live music from acclaimed Christian recording artists, Eucharistic adoration,
breakout sessions, a comedian and a variety of speakers.

Students will have the opportunity to hear music by Matt Maher, a contributing artist for Life Teen, and Matthew West.

Conference attendees will also hear talks by Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR, founder of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal; Archbishop of Denver Charles Chaput; FOCUS founder Curtis Martin and three professors from the Denver-based Augustine Institute. Author and speaker Matthew Kelly, whose message of living God's will by becoming the best version of yourself was inspired by the Second Vatican Council's universal call to holiness, will also speak at the conference.

“As connected as we are to each other through technology, nothing can replace the profound power and sense of belonging that occurs when thousands of people physically gather to pray together, be inspired by each other and collectively grow closer to Jesus Christ,” said FOCUS founder Curtis Martin. “We encourage all students—from the most devout Catholics, to those still investigating matters of faith — to join us in Orlando this year for an event that will change lives.”

More information about the conference as well as registration forms can be found at the conference's website www.focusconference.org. Those unable to attend the conference are asked to pray for its success and to consider sponsoring a student who is unable to go for financial reasons.
