We are a family of priests, brothers and sisters dedicated to Christ and His Church, bound by private vows of obedience, chastity, poverty and martyrdom, praying to be healed and formed into a family by the Divine Family (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) in order to live out in a prophetic manner our baptismal calling to follow Jesus Christ and to be his instruments of healing for families, including not only the individual domestic family, but also the broader family of the Church and of society.
We were founded by Father Philip Scott in 1998 under the auspices of Bishop Robert Lynch of the Diocese of St. Petersburg in Tampa, Florida.
We moved to Chaclacayo, Peru on January 10, 2003 in the Diocese of Chosica under Bishop Norberto Strottman. Finally, in 2008 we fealt called to go “farther in” to the jungle of Peru where we were invited to serve the Apostolic Vicariate of Puerto Maldonado by the present bishop, Msng. Francisco Gonzalez Hernandez.
Looking back at the wonderful trip to Poland and looking forward to the upcomming trip to Panama, Fr. Juan María is the organizer who loves to bring the youth to an experience of the universality of the Church in the great events of the World Youth Days.
It is always great to receive the members of FOCUS and share our ministry with them for two weeks a year. They add so much and bring much joy and hope to the children and youth we minister. If your kids are in college, have them check out if a FOCUS bible study is on campus. They are great blessing to the Church
To Woman is entrusted the task and mission of passing on love and respect, understanding and compassion, hope and peace. To her is entrusted the task of nourishing the spiritual life of her children, bringing the reality of Christ to a broken world, being a symbol of truth and a sing of contradiction in a post Christian age.
