The Labadie Communications creative team began in 1989 as a direct marketing and advertising agency in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our clients asked us to become a full-service advertising agency while also expanding our client base both nationally and internationally. We are now headquartered in Bellevue, Nebraska, just south of Omaha, serving clients throughout the Midwest and in other regions of the United States. In 2004, Phil Labadie met Monsignor Leonard Kalin, vocation director of the Diocese of Lincoln at the time, who needed help producing the Diocese’s seminarian brochure. That effort led to the development of the Seminarian Education Appeal, which we have perfected today. As a result of the success of the SEA, we were led to focus all of our efforts on the Catholic Church, Catholic Religious, and Catholic organizations. Our primary emphasis now is on vocations, and supporting both vocation directors and the office of vocations throughout the United States. Our ministry has grown to several dioceses and, by God’s Grace, our successful programs continue to evolve and have helped many dioceses not only increase vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life, but also to raise awareness and financial resources to support these vocations. Our mission statement is what drives us to continue this most important work for the Church, utilizing and embracing current technology. This is to connect each diocese to those who have a call to the priesthood or consecrated life and the lay faithful who truly have a heart for vocations.
