Building professional networks and enhancing faith

Melbourne Catholic Professionals (MCP) creates opportunities for Catholic professional men and women to network and support the life and mission of the Church in Melbourne.

Events hosted by the MCP draw people together from a range of different industries to share their faith, listen to exceptional speakers and enjoy a meal together.

In a friendly atmosphere of fellowship and faith, current issues and trends in the life of the Church are discussed. Catholic professional networks in Australia and New Zealand attract renowned guest speakers to share how their Catholic faith has influenced their personal and professional lives.

In 2023, the MCP will host three luncheons and a Christmas Gala event. Each function will run from 12 to 2pm. You are invited to be part of this uniquely Melbourne-based network.
