COLUMBUS CATHOLIC BUSINESS NETWORK
Several Catholic business people in Columbus have expressed interest in starting a networking group exclusively for Catholics in Columbus area. There are three goals of the network.
Professional: To provide the opportunity to network with fellow central Ohio Catholic leaders, professionals and organizations for greater economic and professional success.
Spiritual: To more effectively live out our lay vocations through understanding, embracing and demonstrating the teachings of Christ as expressed by the social teachings of the Catholic Church as they apply to the people and structures serving the workplace.
Witness: To collectively and individually give public witness, in both word and action, to authentic Catholic social teachings as they pertain to the economic/business sphere of society.
If you are interested in participating in the organizational meeting please contact Doug Smith at 614.371.2595 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All faithful are welcome.

Clearly, these Sisters have made an impact on the lives of many people throughout their history of service. If anyone wishes to send greetings of congratulations or memories of the Sisters, they would appreciate hearing from you. They can be reached at: Sisters of St. Francis, Mission Advancement,
