GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio (6/5/13)--Ohio Catholic FCU, Garfield Heights, Ohio, is extending its field of membership beyond the Cleveland Catholic Diocese it has served since 1954 to reach all Catholic dioceses in that state.
The credit union, currently with 16,500 member, $154-million-in-assets, has announced it has received National Credit Union Administration approval for the larger membership base.
Ohio Catholic's CEO Todd Turner said in a statement posted to the credit union's website, "Our ongoing goal is to help members of the Catholic community achieve their financial goals and provide a faith-based experience every time members do business with us."
Turner added, "This is an indication of the inherent financial strength of our credit union. We are very proud of this recognition and the opportunity it provides."
Even before the new charter approval, Ohio Catholic FCU was the largest faith-based credit union in Ohio.
