Hello fellow parishioners. I am ______________. I’m here tonight/today to encourage you to join me at the 10th annual Columbus Catholic Women’s Conference. Over 3000 Women from our diocese will gather together on February 18th to pray, reflect, and be inspired. Our mission is to provide opportunities for women to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ, to grow in their realization of their dignity as Catholic women, and to strengthen their commitment to be a disciple of Christ.
The day is filled with amazing speakers,faith filled music and Mass with Bishop Campbell.
You will enjoy 2 of our life giving Sacraments; Holy Eucharist and Reconciliation as well as share the beauty that Eucharistic Exposition brings.
Wherever you may be in your journey of faith, please join us! If you have attended before, bring a friend!
We will carpool from the church parking lot leaving promptly at _____ a.m. on Feb. 18th and we will try to sit together as a large group. I pray that you feel called to join us for an unbelievable day. You will not be disappointed spending the day with your sisters in Christ at the conference.
