FOCUS Conferences

Each year over Christmas break, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) hosts a national conference called SEEK that brings together thousands of college students to hear from top Catholic speakers and spend time in prayer and fellowship, and Notre Dame Campus Ministry coordinates a group to attend!  Conference locations vary from year to year, but are targeted at any college student at any level of faith engagement, encouraging all to take the next step in faith. FOCUS Conferences are open to undergraduate and graduate students from Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College, and Holy Cross College.

SEEK22 Conference (December 30, 2021 - January 3, 2022)

This coming year, SEEK22 will be in Salt Lake City, Utah!  This five-day event will allow us to bring to God all that we are - all our questions, desires, needs, hopes - so that He can make all that is within us new.

More information regarding Notre Dame / Saint Mary's College / Holy Cross College group registration will be posted on this site as it becomes available (likely by October 2022), so check back often.  Registration updates will also be shared via our Campus Ministry e-newsletter (sign up here.)  While anyone can register directly with FOCUS, we encourage you to wait and register with our collegiate group to take full advantage of group discounts and to stay informed regarding group events before, during, and after the conference.  If you have any questions about SEEK22, please contact Brett Perkins at brett.perkins@nd.edu.
