Upcoming Events Greetings! We’re excited to introduce you to Legatus International, the world’s premiere organization for Catholic CEOs and Presidents and their spouses! Legatus is 5,000+ members strong across more than 95 chapters around the United States and Canada. Legatus members encourage one another to integrate their Catholic faith into their business practices and live an influential life—leaders who are “in the world, but not of the world” (Jn. 15:19). Through peer support, edifying speakers, and fidelity to the teachings of the Church, Legatus assists some of the most proven business men and women to become better Catholic leaders and to act as ambassadors of the Faith. Legatus strengthens executives to boldly live their Catholic identity. The core of Legatus is the monthly chapter gathering and dinner where members are empowered to build Christian values in their businesses and communities. These events begin with Mass and the opportunity for confession and the Rosary, with socializing, fine dining, and an inspiring presentation from a thought-provoking speaker. Chapter events, as well as Summits, retreats, and pilgrimages, offer Legatus members frequent opportunities to foster authentic fellowship, cultivate their spiritual lives, and share business acumen. Additional member benefits include: Legatus magazine, Networks—a members-only platform, Forums—confidential small groups, concierge healthcare through HealthNetwork, university and college discounts, and more! Our members are leading organizations and businesses and impacting people, families, communities, and in some cases, our national discourse. We invite you to join our ranks! Yours in Christ, Amy Dillon Southeast Regional Vice President (616) 717- 0060 [email protected] Our Mission: To study, live and spread the Faith in our business, professional and personal lives.

Who We Are…Legatus is the world’s only organization designed exclusively for top-ranking Catholic business leaders and their spouses. The Legatus concept is simple. It brings together three of the most valuable areas of a business leader’s life— faith, family and business—in a powerful and rewarding way. Legatus, Latin for “ambassador,” exists to help you meet the challenge of balancing responsibilities of faith, family, business and community.
