Calling All Business People
Catholic Business Connections (CBC) is an opportunity for businesswomen and men in our diocese (active and retired) who share common values, to network and engage with each other and leaders representing the diocese. CBC gathers four times a year for lunch and to listen to guest speakers chosen to inspire with their unique story and share how they relate their work and spiritual life experience to the context of living in a modern world. The first luncheon for 2020 will be held on Friday 28th February at Rydges Hotel, Campbelltown (11:45am-2pm).
As part of the diocese’s local inter-agency emergency response to the recent bushfires in our region, our social services arm, CatholicCare, has been on the ground helping people as they deal with the immediate aftershock of the fires and will continue to be there as these people rebuild their lives in the medium and long term. Bishop Brian has invited CatholicCare’s Director Michael Austin and Executive Manager Rosanne Plunkett to be the guest speakers. They will speak on a “A heart that sees … and responds”. For more information on CBC and how to join, visit http://www.cbc.dow.org.au or contact Debbie Gates, Diocesan Director of Development and Community Engagement (02) 4222 2446.
RSVP for February luncheon is Monday 24th February.
