The Archdiocesan Office for College Campus Ministry is
teaming up with our FOCUS Missionary teams at the University of Cincinnati,
Wright State University, and Miami University in Oxford to take a group of
350 college students to a regional celebration of SEEK 2022!
The SEEK conference is an annual national young adult conference
presented and organized by the Fellowship of Catholic University
Students (FOCUS). The purpose of the conference is to bring college
students into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through the
experience of Him in the sacraments and in the community of young
adults who all have one great desire: to be with the Lord forever.
The conference features keynote presenters throughout the weekend
and opportunities for workshops given by national and international
leaders in the Catholic Church. The experience is like none other
and all who attend are changed.
While at the conference these students will engage in deep discussions
and deep worship of the Lord Jesus Christ. They will be impacted by the
movement of the HOly Spirit and they will come home ready to seek
the Lord's will in their lives every day and respond generously to that invitation.
The cost to attend a SEEK Conference is relatively inexpensive
(as far as conferences go), but the cost of transportation is a very
large cost to the college students who want to attend. If we can
eliminate that cost, we can give more students this life-changing opportunity.
We would like to raise enough money to cover the cost of charter
buses for every student whom the Lord is calling to attend this conference.
The total cost of that is roughly $32000. That will cover 7 charter buses
full of college students whose greatest desire is to SEEK the Lord and to
come to know Him and serve Him every day of their lives.
