Mondays and Tuesdays are deadline days for Francie Hogan, who in an afterlife may return as a magician, considering her deftness in placing a wild selection of facts, photos, quotes, notes, headlines and bylines all in an appealing order for the enlightenment and enjoyment of readers of Today’s Catholic Newspaper. Her act may seem like voodoo but it is actually finesse and talent in high-tech graphic art which also comes into play as she manages websites for Today’s Catholic and The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. Francie serves on the board of Miss Virginia’s Food Pantry and attends St. Mary Mother of God parish.
