Our Team & Company Culture
We are passionate Catholics who love the Lord and our faith. This inspires everything we do! Our team is made up of top talent who use their professional gifts to evangelize, because we’re on a mission! We want everyone to discover the joy of following Christ.
We are a small, but driven team of marketers, storytellers, designers, technology specialists, and strategists. We are a mostly remote team, but put an emphasis on organizational health and positive personal relationships with our clients and team.
We find inspiration in St. John Paul II’s Laborem Exercens and make St. Joseph our model for work. It should be truly a human activity, a healthy working environment and work-life balance are a priority.
