At St. Catherine’s, FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students) leads Bible studies, service trips and pilgrimages, and hosts some of the best game nights and pancake breakfasts you’ll ever experience. We are blessed to have four full-time FOCUS missionaries who support our students

Bible Studies

There are many opportunities to get involved in a Bible study, which is a great space to grow in relationship with the Lord and one another! To join a Bible study, you can message Bridget through any of the ways below. 

Service Trips

Drake students can get engaged in international and local service trips and/or pilgrimages through FOCUS. Trips change yearly, but you can find more information through any member of our FOCUS team.  


Join us at SEEK, a yearly conference led by FOCUS. SEEK is a four-day conference with upwards of 20,000 other college students gathered together to listen to influential speakers, pray, and encounter the Lord in a new way.  

The yearly FOCUS mission trips are also fantastic ways to engage in service. I recently went on a mission trip to Peru, and it was amazing to encounter Christ through the people that we served there. I am grateful that we continue to cultivate a culture of service in DU Bulldog Catholic and our church!”
