New president of business group 'fired up'

Diana Nagy

The new president of Catholics@Work, Diana Nagy, says, "We leave there fired up!"

Her enthusiasm is generated from the once-a-month breakfasts that bring a wide range of Catholic speakers from around the world into the Oakland diocese.

Now in its second decade, Catholics@Work is a single-purpose lay Catholic organization. Past speakers have included active lay Catholics from many fields including professional sports, education, business, Hollywood, plus priests, religious sisters and bishops, including Oakland's Michael C. Barber, SJ.

Nagy sees the gatherings as especially helpful to Catholics in the contemporary world.

She explains that "you never know what you will get when you go to each event, but you won't want to miss it. We always leave there fired-up!"

A cradle Catholic who grew up in Castro Valley's Transfiguration parish, Nagy emphasizes "I love being Catholic!

"But often today we feel so alone in our belief, surrounded by modern day challenges, and the values of our faith under attack."

The speaker breakfasts inspire all, Nagy explains.

"It's energizing to come together once a month where we all have the same values and beliefs. These speakers inspire us to realize that each one of us, even on our own, can make a difference in this world — just in the way we live our lives.

"As St. Francis so profoundly said it: Always preach, and when necessary use words!"

The Catholics@Work program is open to all. Full information and the upcoming season's schedule is at www.catholicsatwork.org/. The breakfast is $25 for non-members, $20 for members.

Breakfasts begin at 7 a.m. each second Tuesday at Crow Canyon Country Club, Danville. The program ends by 8:30 a.m. sharp. Mass is offered at 6:30 a.m. for those who can arrive early.

Nagy is a professional entertainer, who tours the country honoring our troops with her music. She is a member of St. Isidore parish in Danville, involved in many ministries there as well as a soloist and member of the parish choir.

She succeeds John Dunican as president.
