His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith met the Catholic Professionals and Businessmen on 27th March 2014 at the Archbishop's House, Colombo.

Catholic Business Persons & Professionals Association is a non profit organization based in Sri Lanka and it is conducted to create fraternity among Catholic Business Persons & Professionals and to promote the social doctrine of Gospel and Catholic Church.

His Eminence Cardinal Malcolm had been different groups including doctors, lawyers, artists etc.

In the Vision Statement of the Association it says, " As Professionals we will ask the question How Would the Redeemer have carried out this task if He were in my position being conscious that we are the best door openers for Jesus Christ in the business community.

When dealing with our stake holders, We will ensure the following guiding factors are taken into account when making our business decisions:

Justice and fairplay- not mere net profit.

Serious urgent political, moral and social needs and trends of the country.

We will be sensitive to the relief of those stakeholders who are socially downtrodden and marginalized. We will consider projects that help people help themselves and thereby try to assist them and their families in their personal accomplishments and educational needs.

By taking the message of the Redeemer to our stakeholders we will thus be the catalyst forging links of union for the love of the Redeemer.

As the redeemer Opened Doors of the world for God, we will also Open Doors for the redeemer.

The meeting was organized by Rev. Fr. Cecil Joy Perer and the Faith Animation Team.
