How often does one see interstate traffic backed up for Mass? That was the scene on Saturday, February 17 as Sisters from the Dominican Sisters of Peace traveled to the Ohio State Fair Grounds for the Eleventh Annual Columbus Catholic Women’s Conference.

More than 3000 women, many with children in tow, joined for Mass, speakers and sisterhood throughout the day – and the Dominican Sisters of Peace were everywhere.

Vocation Ministers Sr. Pat Dual, OP, and Sr. Mai Dung Nguyen, OP, met with women to discuss vocations and publicize the upcoming “Come and See” retreat in Central Ohio. Sr. Ana Gonzalez served as a Spanish translator for attendees and Associate Mary Delaney served as a Conference volunteer. Sr. Mary Louis Passeri accompanied Sr. Nadine Buchanan, who spoke to the conference about her street ministry to trafficked women in Central Ohio.
