Please join Vermont Catholic Professionals at the inaugural networking breakfast at the Pomerleau Alumni Center at St. Michael’s College in Colchester on Wednesday, Oct. 10. Dr. Lorraine Sterritt, president of St. Michael’s College, will be the professional development speaker.

This free event will begin with networking and refreshments at 8 a.m. followed by words from Sterritt and ending with information regarding the events to be held in the 2019 calendar year.

Vermont Catholic Professionals was established earlier this year to fill the void of a networking group to create fellowship of professionals that also share values of our Catholic Faith.

There are several local networking organizations within the Burlington area which are a great way for people to connect with other professionals; however, there are not any that are faith-based. Being able to connect with another individual that shares both your values and interests leads to a deeper connection and truly helps one develop professionally, personally and spiritually.

The purpose of Vermont Catholic Professionals is to join Catholic men and women and others with shared values from the business and professional communities to encourage intellectual discussions, to foster professional and faith-based relationships and to inspire service and charity to the community in Vermont. Vermont Catholic Professionals will be hosting quarterly networking events which offer networking, refreshments, and a professional development speaker that is relevant to the business and professional communities here in Vermont.
