Navy Football

This past weekend I went to the Navy Football game.  
I love football games.  
It was an awesome game to watch because they were playing against my Alumni! 
Here are some pictures of the game:

It's tradition to throw candy to the midshipmen as they march over

Varsity Catholic

Hello, my name is Aly and I am a Varsity Catholic Missionary
at Loras College.  As a missionary, I work full time serving the student
atheltes and inviting them into a growing relationshipe with Jesus Christ.
I am a first year missionary and I am enjoying the opportunity
God has blessed me with. Varsity Catholic was founded in 2007 within the
organization called FOCUS - the Fellowship of Catholic University Students.  The
organization relaized the unique needs and challenges that student athletes faced
and decided to create this ministry for those students. We currently serve on
7 of the 43 FOCUS colleges.

What's FOCUS?

FOCUS stands for: 
the Fellowship Of Catholic University Students

Here is a picture of all the FOCUS missionaries for the year of 2012 - 2013

The Main Thing
Inviting college students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.
Inspiring and equipping them for a lifetime of Christ-centered evangelization,
discipleship, and friendship in which they lead others to do the same.

Our Mission 
To know Christ Jesus, and to fulfill His great commission by first living and then
communicating the fullness of life within the family of God, the Church.

We are both blessed to be FOCUS missionaries and to serve college students on our respective colleges: The United States Naval Academy and Loras College.  College is a pivotal moment in everyone's life.  Many life decisions are made on the college campus and several students fall away from their faith.  Our job is to go out and meet students, where they are in their walk of faith, then guide them through bible studies and one-on-one mentorship
into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

Today is St. Therese of Liseux's Feast Day!


Here are some of quotes by Saint Therese:

"Let us go forward in peace, our eyes upon heaven, the only one goal of our labors."

"Without love, deeds, even the most brilliant, count as nothing."

"For me prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look towards Heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy."

"You cannot be half a saint; you must be a whole saint or no saint at all."

Saint Therese of Lisieux, Pray for Us!
