Our Mission

The Catholic Employment Network (CEN) was formed in May 2002 by several parish job search ministry leaders.

Our Mission is to serve the St. Louis area community who need help during their job search transition by providing spiritual and practical job search support services . CEN conducts job search workshops throughout the year, addressing the critical topics of the job search: networking, interviewing, resume-writing, etc. Workshops are held are various parishes throughout St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County.

Parish groups are very active and help job seekers in a variety of ways; many hold individual job support groups within their parish, providing support and encouragement, discuss effective job search techniques and advice for specific job search situations/problems. Some of the groups also provide spiritual support in their meetings. All of the parish chapters can help job seekers through one-on-one coaching.

Prayer For Employment

God our Father and Creator, your son Jesus, told us not to worry about our physical and material needs; to observe how you care for the little birds and clothe the fields with beautiful flowers. Trusting in your concern for us, we beg you, hear our prayer for employment. May work soon be found and our mind set at rest. Turn our worry into joy and “prosper the work of our hands for us; prosper the work of our hands.” We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
