Celebrate Our Founding

Fifty years ago in December, 47 Catholic Sisters gathered in Washington, D.C. and the spark that would become NETWORK was ignited.

We invite you to celebrate this historic moment of NETWORK’s founding at Trinity Washington University, where that momentous meeting was held. Please join us at Trinity Washington University on Thursday, December 16 for cocktails and light fare from 4:00-6:00pm.
