Merry Christmas

to all our


Members, Sponsors, Supporters and Friends

Thanks to all of you for your enthusiastic support of Catholics@Work, our mission of bringing the Love of Christ into our everyday lives, and your attendance at our events in 2018.

Our approach has changed, as we have and are hosting four events at parish locations throughout the Oakland Diocese: St. Raymond in Dublin with Archbishop Aquila of Denver and Bishop Barber of Oakland in October; Curtis Martin, Founder and CEO of FOCUS at St. Joan of Arc in San Ramon in November, Fr. Bill Watson, addressing The Beatitudes for Business in April at St Stephen in Walnut Creek and Lizzy Reezay, a Recent Convert to Catholicism and Big YouTube Star, also at St. Stephen, finishing our sessions in May. We have found the enthusiastic reception by the parishioners and the evening venue, have resulted in greater attendance and an age diverse demographic.

We mix the parish programs with the normal four programs have been held and are scheduled at Crow Canyon Country Club, beginning with mass at 0630. February 12th, our presenter will be Lannette Turicchi, Founder and CEO of Falling Upwards Productions and former Head of non-theatrical distribution for Dreamworks; March 12th, Attila Bardos will recount The Miracle of Prayer and Steven Lewis presents. Steven is the Coordinator for Young Adults and Evangelization for the Diocese of Oakland.

Please join us at Catholics@Work beginning in February, throughout 2019 and become a member by selecting “Membership” on this webpage..

We wish you a Joyeux Noel and may the Peace of Christ be with you always.
