For these Catholic business leaders, faith is the key

Regular prayer. People over profits. The Golden Rule. These are some of the ways the eight professionals featured in the following pages share their Catholic faith in their workplaces. They’re also why The Catholic Spirit is honoring them with our 2017 Leading with Faith Award.

Nominated by colleagues, pastors and friends, these women and men demonstrate what it means to integrate faith and work. They’re much-needed models in a culture where Catholics often feel pressured to leave their beliefs at home, feel stuck in ethical dilemmas, or struggle to understand what role the Holy Spirit could have in guiding their business decisions or professional paths. Our winners — in ways ranging from subtle to overt — approach the people they encounter through their work as Christ, striving for wisdom and virtue and putting others ahead of themselves.

The Catholic Spirit launched these annual awards 16 years ago in the aftermath of scandals at Enron, Qwest and World-Com, and we think they’re just as relevant today. Winners were honored Aug. 10 with a luncheon at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul with Archbishop Bernard Hebda. Read Q&As with them in this special section, as well as other stories related to Catholic business leadership.

Editor’s note: Our winners’ portraits are by Dave Hrbacek, The Catholic Spirit’s staff photographer, with the exception of Kieran McNulty, who submitted photos.
