The Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in the United States (FOCUS) is an English ministry for young adults and young families. It is a Ministry of the Diocese of South-West America of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church.
The Mission of FOCUS:
To encourage people to live the fullness of life - a life in communion with Christ and in His Holy Church
1. Knowing it is Living it!
Our faith is only learned, not when we hear something, but when we can live it out.
2. Making our Home a "Mini-Church"
This idea from St. John Chrysostom highlights the importance of our home being an extension of the Church which includes liturgical prayer, fasting, and an overall awareness of the presence of God.
3. Living Simply, Giving Generously
Becoming people of love and generosity - giving more of our time, talent, and treasure for the building up of God's Kingdom.
