The Fellowship of Catholic University Students recently announced it’s seventh annual National Student Leadership Conference to be held in Denver this January.
Last year over 1300 young people traveled from around the country to hear talks by speakers such as professor and author Scott Hahn and Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ.
According to Nikki Shasserre, Director of Public Relations for FOCUS, “the first conference began outside of Kansas City in January of 1999 with 25 students.”
This year, FOCUS plans to break previous records, projecting attendance well over last year’s 1300 students. Speakers for this year’s conference include FOCUS founder, Curtis Martin, author Matthew Kelly and professor Scott Hahn.
