About the Lecture:

Join Rev. Roberto M. Cid as he presents the life of Argentine businessman Enrique E. Shaw, who sought to instill the principles of Catholic social teaching in the workplace. The life of this father and businessman shows us that by relying on the grace of God and sound business practices, it is possible to be both successful in the business world and holy. In an age marked by a deep anthropological crisis that affects the workplace, labor relations, business practices, and economic policy Shaw’s testimony is not only relevant to the 21st century, but urgently needed.
