Columbus Catholic Women's Conference


Mother Olga Yaqob was born and raised in Iraq. When she was 13 years old, a war between her native Iraq and Iran began. It was the horrific conditions of that war that she witnessed, that shaped her decision to become a religious sister. In 2010, at the invitation of Cardinal Sean O'Malley, she started a new religious order within the Archdiocese of Boston called the Daughters of Mary, Our Lady of Nazareth. She is known as the "The Mother Teresa of Baghdad".

Dr. Edward Sri is a nationally known Catholic speaker who appears regularly on EWTN and is the author of several well-loved Catholic books. He is a founding leader, with Curtis Martin, of FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students), and he currently serves as vice president of mission and outreach and professor of theology and scripture at the Augustine Institute master's program in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Sri holds a doctorate from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome. He resides with his wife, Elizabeth, and their seven children in Littleton, Colorado.

Emily Wilson is a young, energetic, Catholic musician and speaker who travels the world sharing her faith through witness and worship. With prayerful songwriting, pure vocals, and piano melodies, Emily conveys a message of redemption, worship, and hope. Emily is on a mission to draw others to Christ through her speaking and her music that is both prayerful and powerful.
