We're excited to have our second Executive Speaker Series on Thursday, May 25th at 7:00pm at St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Fort Worth! Our speaker will be Charles W. Moore, Jr., Retired Vice Admiral of the U.S. Navy. Vice Admiral Moore will share how his Catholic faith has shaped his career and how he considers everything to truly be a blessing from God.

He has a very compelling story to share, so you won't want to miss this! Vice Admiral Moore also serves as Chapter President of the Fort Worth Chapter of the Serra Club, an organization which aims to encourage and support vocations to religious life. This is a great opportunity to hear a unique perspective on how those in lay walks of life and those discerning religious life can hear and pursue God's universal call to holiness in Christ.

The Executive Speaker Series is a free event open to the public in which executives share their career and faith journeys with young professionals, challenging them to "Work in Witness for Christ."

Attendees enjoy complimentary drinks and appetizers and have a chance to socialize before and after the evening's presentation.
