Seek '23

Seek '23

Wherever you are, whatever you do, right in this moment: You’re being called.
Not by the world, but by Someone not of this world. Not merely to survive, but to thrive in His abundance. Not for empty desires, but for the fullness of His promise of eternal life.

The Augustine Institute is proud to collaborate with FOCUS, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students, and provide content for Catholics who attended SEEK23 to continue to understand, live, and share their faith this year. You are called to leave old things behind and answer a new call to greatness, holiness, joy and mission.

Stand up. Dust yourself off. It’s time to follow.
“Fear not; rise, He is calling you.” (Mk 10:49)
