As Catholic professional and business men and women, we are called to live our Christian ethics not only on Sundays but throughout our daily lives at home and at work.
Our goal in the Catholic Professional and Business Club shall be to incorporate and uphold our beliefs in every aspect of our daily lives, and to gather to share with others who seek a more ethical business environment.
Each of us shall strive to achieve a commingling of our ethical and professional obligations, in demonstration of the fact that ethics and business need not be mutually exclusive terms.
