 What is Young Catholic Network?

Young Catholic Network is a ministry aiming to host quarterly gatherings that will bring young adult professionals of the Des Moines metro together to build community through their common faith, to network and get to know one another, and to witness to one another on the way they live their faith in the workplace.  An integral element of these gatherings will be inviting established members of the professional community to share with the young adults their witness, professional achievements, and to give practical advice on what young Catholics may encounter in the secular workplace and how they can keep their faith, drawing others to Christ. 

 Why attend?

- Enjoy complimentary drinks and appetizers
