Assembly of Catholic Professionals

An opportunity to be transformed…

The Assembly of Catholic Professionals provides a unique formational opportunity for Catholic lay professionals to grow in faith.  ACP serves as a Catholic community forum for developing our faith and our work toward a common cause.

Quarterly luncheon meetings feature speakers who share experiences and discuss relevant topics and challenges facing today’s lay Catholic.  Attendees enjoy the benefits of fellowship, networking and formation with a special focus on our identity as lay believers and community leaders.

Lay believers are in the front line of Church life […] therefore, they in particular ought to have an ever-clearer consciousness not only of belonging to the Church, but of being the Church.

                  --Pius XII, February 20, 1946, as quoted in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 899
