"Everyone should be able to draw from work the means of providing for his life and that of his family, and of serving the human community."
The guild has several categories for its members, including business owners, sales people, entrepreneurs, and common members. A free membership is offered to nonprofits, parishes, and business professionals - people with hiring or purchasing powers. The membership fee ranges from $20-200.
Vasko said the guild is also a place for people to connect with a Catholic community and pursue careers more conducive to the Catholic faith.
"There are more and more people that are having trouble in the workplace with their faith or that they are uncomfortable in the workplace," he said.
"We have people joining just for the community aspect. They are not necessarily looking for jobs; they want to meet other Catholics who are businessmen or just plain other Catholic men they can't find at their parish."
Bret Sutton, director of development at St. John the Baptist in New Brighton, is secretary for the organization. He told the Catholic Spirit that the project brings together Catholic ideals and work.
"We believe strongly in the dignity of the human person, entrepreneurship and strengthening the family," he said.
"What I'm most excited to see is businessmen and women … bringing together these two powerful worlds - faith and business - to energize and rejuvenate not only our Church but (also) our greater society," he added.
