We are an independent, not-for-profit membership organization of Catholic professionals who strive to advance, in both word and action, the teachings
of Christ as expressed through the social teachings of the Catholic Church.

In the spring of 2010, a few Catholic business men met to discuss the idea of a Catholic business network to accomplish several critical goals. These faith filled men collaborated on a plan to launch the Saint Joseph's Businessmen Network. Meetings are a combination of networking, presentations and discussions of living Catholic values and evangelization in the home, community and workplace.
Faith and work are not only compatible but necessary and complimentary in building a more free and just society for all in our community. As practicing Catholics we are in a unique position to be a public witness to our Faith by exemplifying the highest standards of personal and professional practices.
Saint Joseph is the patron saint of workers and was also declared to be the patron saint and protector of the Catholic Church by Pope Pius IX. With Saint Joseph - the father, the worker, the provider - as our inspiration, we carry forth to parent, produce and spread the Good News in a manner consistent with his critical role in our religion.
The Vision of the Saint Joseph's Businessmen Network is to serve Christ and His Church by engaging in the evangelization and sanctification of the business community and building a more free, just and virtuous society.
The Saint Joseph's Businessmen Network is an organization dedicated to Saint Joseph the Worker. We are Catholic men who look to support each other in our mission to know God and serve Him in our given vocation of Husband and/or Father or single state. We will support each other through prayer, fellowship, networking and accountability in our role of leader and protector of our families.
To accomplish this mission, SJBN supports three strategic goals:
Professional: To provide the opportunity to network with fellow Catholic professionals for greater economic and professional success.
Spiritual: To more effectively live out our lay vocations through understanding, embracing and demonstrating the teachings of Christ as expressed by the social teachings of the Catholic Church as they apply to the people and structures serving the workplace.
Witness: To collectively and individually give public witness, in both word and action, to authentic Catholic social teachings as they pertain to the economic/business sphere of society.
