Although Focus reaches millions of viewers throughout the world many people do not realize that Focus is located in the small town of Covington, LA about 45 minutes outside of New Orleans. It is by no mistake, God placed Focus in St. Peter Parish, the oldest church on the Northshore of Lake Ponchartrain with the most advanced technology.
The Lord said to Peter "You are Peter, and upon this rock, I build my church." Pope Francis is asking us to open wide the doors of mercy, and to go out into the world beyond the walls of the church. Today this applies in a special way with a technology beyond the wildest imaginings for those who have preached the Gospel before us. In the Focus 2 part special you will hear how Fr. Otis Young and Fr. Peter Finney, in response to the Pope, were not afraid to throw open the doors of Christ through the use of social media. Upon this Rock I build this app. That's our Focus!
