Meet & Greet

Meet & Greets are popular networking events where Catholic business professionals can meet, exchange business cards and talk business and faith in a relaxed and informal setting. Meet & Greet events take place all over the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend and are hosted by a myriad of Catholic business owners.

Join us the first Friday of the month for a Catholic Business Network Breakfast! Each month, Mass is at 7 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Chapel. Breakfast and our speaker will follow at 8 a.m. in the Cathedral Center. These events are free, and all are welcome!

Mark your calendars for a Meet & Greet near you!

Join the Catholic Business Network on Friday, June 1 for our First Friday Breakfast. We will begin with Mass in the St. Mother Theodore Guerin Chapel (by the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception) at 7 a.m.. This will be followed by networking, breakfast, and our featured speaker at 8 a.m. in the Cathedral Center. June’s featured speaker is Mike Kelly “The Accidental Leadership Theology of Mary Poppins.” His talk will begin at 8:00 a.m. Mike Kelly is the president of Calienté LLC in Fort Wayne, IN. As an entrepreneur, Mike understands the challenges or running and growing a small business modeled on servant leadership. He is a convert to the faith and is a parishioner at St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Fort Wayne.

GROW your business by inviting people in!

If you have the space to host the event at your business, that’s great! However, many businesses find that hosting the event at a separate facility, or partnering with another business, provides them just as much exposure. Meet & Greet events are more than networking for one night. By marketing and advertising, hosting/sponsoring a Meet & Greet gives your business the opportunity to have exposure to the Today’s Catholic newspaper audience—That’s 45,000+ households! Hosts of Meet & Greet don’t have to limit their guest list to just Catholic business professionals. We encourage you to invite clients, customers, vendors and personal contacts.
