The Catholic Leadership Collaborative

Nurturing Servants of the Word

The Catholic Leadership Collaborative was founded to create a vibrant, professional and faithful community of women and men serving in leadership roles at Catholic institutions in and around the St. Louis area.

Our Vision

Our vision for The Catholic Leadership Collaborative is simple:

  • Intentionally invite and gather Catholic leaders who serve in influential positions within Catholic Education, Catholic Social Outreach and Catholic Healthcare organizations.
  • Foster an environment of relationship building and professional networking for greater awareness and collaboration among our Catholic community.

Each of our gatherings will have a brief overview from our host’s ministry and their mission, a 30-minute presentation over a relative topic and 1 hour for relationship building over food and drink. Click here for the list of our CLC Advisory Committee Members.

“As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also called Christ. – 1 Corinthians 12:12”
