Hello fellow parishioners. I am ______________. I’m here tonight/today to encourage you to join me at the annual Columbus Catholic Women’s Conference. Women from our diocese will gather together on February 18 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.
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. 17 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.
Conference hot cards are in the gathering area and you can register online at ColumbusCatholicWomen.com
Please join us!!
