Event description

Description

Young Catholic professionals, this pub event is at the Vancouver Art Gallery Cafe (enter via exterior stairs to patio).

The creators of Catholic After Hours have developed, The YP Lounge, a career and life mentorship program dedicated to helping young professionals balance career, life, dating ventures, marriage, and family. The YP Lounge is hosted by Vancouver's Life Community.

Has something profoundly changed in society if stats show that men don’t fare as well as women, or when social movements are inspired to call out male predatorial behaviour, and that some stereotypically masculine traits are toxic? If these suggestions and trends apply broadly, then there would surely be a wide range of effects that influence how men and women relate to each other in the workplace, while dating, or in married life.

Our guest panelists consisting of Marisa Ruggier-Andrews, HR Director at RCAV will cover the career and workplace angle while Fr. Justin Huang, pastor at St. Anthony’s of Padua will cover topics in between. Our dynamic guest host tonight is Jared White, Executive Director of Advokate. He will help facilitate an engaging evening.

Bios:
Jared White - Guest 'talk show' host.
Jared White is the Executive Director of Advokate and lives in Abbotsford with his wife and 4 children. He is passionate about social justice issues and believes a society should be measured by how well it looks after its most vulnerable members. Jared is an experienced presenter to all age groups and speaks on a variety of topics related to beginning and end of life issues.


Guest panelists:
Fr. Justin Huang was ordained a priest in 2006, happily served as an assistant in St. Mary’s, Chilliwack and St. Paul’s, Richmond, and then was asked to study for the Diplomatic Service of the Holy See in Rome. After completing three years of study at the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy in Rome, where he learned Italian, and completed his J.C.L. (Licentiate in Canon Law) with a thesis on the rights and duties surrounding dialogue in the Church, he returned to Vancouver, and served as assistant pastor at Our Lady of the Assumption parish, Port Coquitlam, while being the part-time chaplain at our highly-rated local Catholic college, Redeemer Pacific College. He is thrilled to be now appointed pastor of St. Anthony of Padua, Vancouver, and is very thankful to God to be there.
