Catholic professionals meet for faith and eggs

Recording artist Andy Cooney spoke to business professionals last week about his Catholic faith, his family, and the importance of service to others, at the Catholic Business Network of Southern New Jersey’s monthly breakfast, at Woodcrest Country Club in Cherry Hill.
Forty business professionals came together on Friday, Jan. 10 to network and share their faith and experiences.
At the monthly gatherings, individuals get “a good message, good speaker, and meet great people,” observed Thomas Iacovone, vice president of Art Guild, Inc., a full-service trade show and event company for corporations.
A parishioner and trustee of the Catholic Community of the Holy Spirit in Mullica Hill, Iacavone also serves as director of the School Advisory Board for Gloucester Catholic High School.
“I can form a common bond, with like-minded individuals,” he said.
Gary Zimak, Cinnaminson resident, author, radio host and Catholic evangelist, spoke at the first breakfast, held last fall. Since then, he has come to hear all of the speakers and to meet others.
“I’m very impressed with this group of people I interact with, who live out their faith not just on Sunday, but through their businesses, and everyday practices. They’re authentically Catholic,” he said.
The breakfast was not just a place for faithful businessmen and women currently in the workplace, but for those looking for work, such as Kimberly Muldoon, a recent transplant to the Philadelphia area from New York.
“This monthly meet-up is a great networking tool,” she said.
The next breakfast will be held on Friday, Feb. 14 at the Woodcrest Country Club, with Father Stephen Rapposelli. For more information, contact Sheila McGirl at sjcbn@comcast.net
