    Join us to celebrate 5 years of Young Catholic Professionals in Houston! We'll have a special Mass with former YCP Houston Chaplain, Fr. TJ Dolce, then hear from YCP's Founder and National Executive Director, Jennifer Baugh. 

    Jennifer Baugh received her Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Trinity University and her MBA from Texas A&M, graduating summa cum laude. She worked for Merrill Lynch in the Global Wealth Management practice and for FTI Consulting in the Corporate Restructuring practice before starting the YCP apostolate in 2010.

    Come hear Jenn share her story of starting YCP, balancing YCP with starting a family, and how young Catholic professionals can confront challenges in our church and our oftentimes polarizing world. As we enter a new decade, how can we be authentically Catholic in an increasingly secular world? And if we are to be the next generation of Catholic leaders, how do we balance humility with a desire to grow in our careers and multiply our impact to be forces for good in our world?

    Join us at our February Executive Speaker Series featuring Dr. Janet E. Smith – and celebrate Mardi Gras!

    Dr. Smith recently retired from Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, MI. She is a former consulter to the Pontifical Council on the Family and the author of Humanae Vitae: A Generation Later and A Right to Privacy. Dr. Smith served as a member of the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission, III for 8 years.

    She has a regular column in the National Catholic Register and has received three honorary doctorates and several other awards for scholarship and service. She has appeared on the Geraldo show, Fox Morning News, CNN International, CNN Newsroom, AlJazeera and has done many shows for various series on EWTN.

    Come hear Dr. Smith talk about the challenges young professionals face in understanding a church engulfed in so much recent controversy; how the Church is in dire need of young Catholics who can be genuine witnesses in the world; and how young Catholics can work – personally and professionally – to lead our Church in this next decade.

    7 p.m. | Event check-in and networking
    7:40 p.m. | Opening prayer and remarks
    7:45 p.m. | Hear from Dr. Smith
