Work and Faith: Living as Disciples in the 9-to-5 World

Rich Harter

When we look at the world we know at Church on Sunday and the world we work in during the week,  the two worlds often seem like different and disconnected places. How do we connect our Sunday faith  with our weekly work? This session will explore how we can bridge the two worlds and live as faithful  disciples in our everyday 9-5 world. Finding this bridge is critical since it literally has eternal implications! Come and find out why!

Rich Harter is the Director of the John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization at the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.  He has a wide range of experience in ministry, education, and administration through his 33 years of work in the Catholic Church.

Leadership Lessons for Uncertain Times

Chris Lowney

People in many fields – business, health care, education, government, the church – all face a key question:  how can we elicit the leadership we need in order to be our best?  Surveys show that we do not have a lot of confidence in the ability of our current leadership to face the challenges of the future.  To help us with this critical issue, Chris Lowney reveals leadership principles that have guided a 450-year-old company that changed the world: the Jesuits. These leadership principles are rooted in tradition, but they continue to speak meaningfully to us today as we face challenging situations, increasing ambiguity, and rapid change.

Chris Lowney is a former Jesuit seminarian who worked for J.P. Morgan for seventeen years, serving as a managing director in New York, Tokyo, Singapore, and London.  He is the author of four books, including Heroic Leadership (2003) and Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads (2013).
