We are so blessed to have been given the encouragement of Archbishop George J. Lucas to develop a group within the Omaha Archdiocese to provide an opportunity for Catholic professionals and business people to meet one another and discover ways in which we can be successful business professionals and faithful Catholics at the same time. It also provides a chance to network with Catholic business people in the Archdiocese to help create a better business climate.
If you are a Catholic, or would just enjoy spending time in a networking environment where the perspective embraces the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, and you have an interest in hearing some wonderful, encouraging speakers who promote Catholic Christian values within their daily work lives, you are welcome to become a member of the Catholic Professional & Business Club of the Archdiocese of Omaha.
