Two Inspiring Speakers
Highlight Our

March 12, 2019 Meeting

Steven Lewis and Attila Bardos

Catholics@Work will offer two speakers on Tuesday morning, March 12…and what a great program it will be! C@W’s President Emeritus, Attila Bardos, will reflect on his incredible recovery from a severe stroke. He was completely paralyzed on his left side. Doctors did not know if he would be able to walk or use his left arm, hand and fingers again. In his battle for life, Attila was in ICU for a week before stabilizing enough to transfer to acute rehab.

Steve Lewis is an energetic young Catholic evangelist, who uses social media to connect to young lives, reaching out person-to-person via his YouTube Channel, Steve the Missionary. Lewis argues that evangelization happens directly via contemporary communication venues. He is a former FOCUS missionary. Lewis recently posted a book review of the Bible! “The Bible isn’t merely the inspired word of God, sufficient for teaching, rebuking, training, and teaching righteousness,” says Lewis, “It’s also a really good read!”

Attila will share his remarkable recovery journey, a story for us all, of the miraculous power of prayer, God’s powerful love and providence, and the quest for total abandonment to God’s will”, comments David Manion, President of Catholics@Work.

C@W is an eighteen-year-old ministry of the Oakland Diocese, whose purpose is to bring inspiring Catholic leaders to share their real-life stories with us and bring Christ into our daily lives.
