Chapter History

“What profit is there for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?” – Mark 8:36

Legatus of Austin began formation in 2014 and was chartered March 18, 2015 at the University of Texas Club in Austin as the fifth Legatus chapter in the state of Texas.
 
Past events have included such notable speakers as Tom Monaghan, Jennifer Fulwiler, Fr. Leo Patalinghug, and Al Kresta. Our 2018 program schedule can be found below.
 
We currently have one men’s forums and one women’s forum. The forums meet monthly in their small group setting to share and discuss aspects of their faith, family, and business. For more information about our Forum groups contact John Oberg at John.Oberg@gmail.com.
 
We are grateful to His Excellency Joe S. Vásquez, Bishop of Austin and his blessing of our efforts to grow Legatus in Austin and the surrounding area. We are eager to welcome those who have an interest in membership with a community of believers and business minds, as Ambassadors for Christ in the Marketplace. 
 
We’d love to have prospective members be our guest at one of our events. If you are interested in learning more about Legatus, please contact our Membership Chair: Scott Whitaker at scott-whitaker@austindiocese.org or our Membership Vice-Chair: Chris Kappmeyer at chris@brokernetwork.com.
