FOCUS 2017, SERVICE, SPORTS, AND FUN WITH LOTS OF PRAYERS AND HEALING
What a blessing it is each year to have a visit from FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students). It is an organization that on more than 150 university campuses across the US. We have been hosting a mission team visit each year for the past four years. This year we had 12 come and it was, as it has been each year, a lot of fun, a lot of healing, and a lot of ministry together. Let´s see some of the events that we have shared together during the two weeks the visited us from July 7th through the 21st.
The looks like the begging of a good friendship.
We put FOCUS to work sanding and painting the chapel in Triunfo

Fr. José María organized a sports day. Here he leads the basketball players in prayer before the games began
The Volleyball turnament was also a hit or better said “a spike.”
