about us

YCP Greater Cincinati is the 29th Chapter of Young Catholic Professionals. Our Chapter is inclusive of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and the Diocese of Covington. The objectives of our chapter are: 1) Develop and foster a community of everyday working Catholic people. We are the future of the church and will be the ones financially supporting our parishes and communities in the future. It is important to give people a place where they can belong and have a network of working young people who share the same values and beliefs. 2) To connect up and coming young professionals with older seasoned business people/Catholic business owners who can serve as speakers, mentors, and board members. Since our YCP Greater Cincinnati chapter operates as our own nonprofit, and other members and participants in our chapter may be entrepreneurs themselves, the experience of seasoned professionals is very valuable and they can help us prepare to be successful in the future. 3) Develop relationships and network with Catholic-owned businesses so we can support them. We want to be able to have our events at Catholic-owned businesses and also develop a list of Catholic-owned or Catholic-friendly employers so that we can connect potential customers and/or job seekers to them.

YCP has allowed me to grow confident to carry the cross of Christ and not be afraid to share the glory of God.

I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to hear from seasoned professionals who have lived faithfully in the midst of life. It’s good exposure for me and gives me great ideas for how to do the same.

Beyond words. YCP has given me great friendships, spiritual formation, pulled out my strengths and giftedness and has taught me what it means to be a servant leader.
