Welcome to the Sydney Catholic Business Network!
“At a time when the ethical behaviour of all sectors of society is under scrutiny, the Sydney Archdiocese provide an opportunity for members of the business and government community to dialogue together within a Christian ethical framework."
His Eminence, Cardinal George Pell AC,
Vatican Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy
"The Business Network is another way in which we can build on the social capital of our society through the interaction among a diverse range of people, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, good people with Christian values who are supportive of our work and interested in a dialogue."
Danny Casey, Project Manager, Vatican Secretariat for the Economy
An initiative of the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, this venture was launched in November 2011 by His Eminence, Cardinal George Pell, former Archbishop of Sydney, with around 100 business, community and Catholic leaders in attendance. This was a significant milestone for several important reasons: It was the fulfilment of the Sydney Archdiocese’s long-held aim to open up new avenues for nurturing relationships with the greater business community; a further opportunity to contribute to the public debate; providing an opportunity for more dialogue with Government; a way of deepening existing ties with similar minded community organisations and showcasing the significant works of the Church focused on social inclusion and charitable works.
The Business Network has matured into a significant annual program of events. Membership includes four business luncheons throughout the year and is open to like minded Christians and those supportive of our works who would like to share ideas and possibly collaborate on future special projects.
The Sydney Catholic Business Network has steadily gained momentum since its inception, consistently commanding high calibre speakers, quality presentations, a steadily growing membership base and genuine networking opportunities for members. The Network continues to evolve and strengthen in its aim of raising awareness of social issues of mutual concern and interest.
