FOCUS, the Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in the United States is an organization intended for young adults, both married and single, post-graduate students as well as professionals, approximately ages 23 and up. Its goal is to provide a forum, both spiritual and social, for young adults in the American context, looking to enhance their experience of the Orthodox Church. In doing so, FOCUS seeks to take on the challenges faced by young adults in American society; including but not limited to issues of substance abuse, marital and premarital counseling, professional development, and youth counseling. The aim is certainly not to create a divide in the Church nor to ignore the MGOCSM and other spiritual organizations. FOCUS looks to strengthen the Church as a whole by utilizing the strengths and developing the theological and spiritual awareness of our next generation of adults in the Orthodox Faith.
Ms. Jincy Mathew is the 2014 FOCUS coordinator. Under the leadership of Rev. Fr. Gheevarghese John and Ms. Jincy Mathew, FOCUS of our parish is being reorganized.
