Christ@Work Conference 2023
“Joy at Work. Work in Love.”
An initiative bringing together CBN’s Christ@Work Conference 2023 and Catholic Foundation’s “Young Stewards Conference”
The Christ@Work conference is a biennial conference where Christians and non-believers
alike are invited to join distinguished speakers as well as fellow working adults to discuss
current issues relating to our Catholic Faith to the workplace. The first Christ@Work
conference was inaugurated in 2005 and has been held every 2 years since. The full-day
conference features keynote speakers and panel sessions, and typically closes with a mass.
This year, in the spirit of One Church, CBN and Catholic Foundation are excited to bring you the joint Christ@Work and Young Stewards Conference on the theme “Joy at Work, Work in Love.” Come and enjoy a time of sharing and reflection as our keynote speakers share more on “The Dignity of Work” by Fr David Garcia, OP and “Servant Leadership” by Alex Yam. This is followed by Christ@Work’s conference track for working adults and business owners, featuring distinguished speakers – entrepreneurs, professionals, and business leaders. While young adults can take on the Young Stewards Conference track.
