The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) hosts a conference each year with the goal of equipping young Catholics with the tools they need to become effective witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. At this Year’s SEEK event from January 2-6, over 17,000 young Catholics gathered in St. Louis’ Dome at America’s Center to make new friends and explore their faith. Attendees had an opportunity to visit booths set up by different Catholic organizations and also take part in daily Mass, the first of which featured a homily given by St. Louis Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski.
“Each one of us is here this evening because we have been called to participate in salvation history,” said the Archbishop. “May our time together this week strengthen us in our love for Christ, His Church, and the desire in our hearts to share this good news with a waiting and expectant world.”
