Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in the United States
FOCUS is a spiritual organization that caters to the spiritual needs of the
older youth in the American Diocese.
Officially established by the Diocesan Metropolitan's Kalpana in September of 2005, it has slowly begun to take root
in many of the diocese's major cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Dallas, Chicago, and Houston. We are working hard
to establish units in many other places so that young professionals and couples over the age of 23 can come together
for spiritual growth and renewal.
- To provide spiritual enrichment for young adults and couples via prayer meetings, Bible studies, counseling
sessions led by trained professionals, etc.
- To train young adults to be active in the administration and activities on the parish level.
- To use the skills and experience of young adults to provide a support system for the young people of our church
via Sunday School, MGOCSM, and OVBS.
- To identify and bring back young adults who have left the church for various reasons, and provide them with a way
into the Christian community.
