Magnificat ® is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God, an image of the Church, and model for all Christians, especially women.

Two hundred Catholic women from all walks of life crowded into a Knights of Columbus hall on October 7, 1981, to have breakfast and to hear a woman’s personal
witness to the power of God in her life.

The women who left that hall were filled with a joy that only the Holy Spirit can give; that is, a deeper awareness of God’s loving presence in their lives and a burning desire to share this wonderful experience with more and more of their sisters in Christ.

The modest breakfast held on October 7, 1981, is today, a ministry to Catholic women known as “Magnificat” with Chapters in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.

While the Magnificat Meal is the main function of the ministry, Magnificat is much more than “putting on a meal.” It is a time of praise and worship, fellowship, and prayer.
Magnificat is a private association of the Christian faithful under the vigilance and jurisdiction of the local ordinary. The ministry is consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The essence of Magnificat is the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). Magnificat is a woman-to-woman ministry which calls forth a lively faith in God and His actions in daily life, a love for Mary and for the Church, and deep holiness. The words of Our Lady’s canticle in Luke’s gospel take on a personal significance for Magnificat women as they seek to magnify the Lord in their own lives and lead others to know His great love and goodness.

We encourage you to join us as we pray, learn, and experience what God can do in our lives if we let Him!

Christmas Message from Magnificat

Christmas Message from Magnificat MinistriesThe Christmas story, as told in Luke 2:1-14, is timeless. We celebrate with great joy the birth of Jesus. He comes as the least among us – a child, born in a stable.

What a location for the King of Heaven and Earth to make an appearance! Throughout the ages, we have joined with the angels as they praise – Glory to God in the highest!

This is also our prayer of praise today.  At this holy time of year, let us take a few minutes to listen to and reflect on God’s goodness.

Christ is born for us. This is the message of Christmas. This is the good news every day!

Magnificat, A Ministry to Catholic Women, prays that you and yours have a blessed Christmas Season and a joy-filled Happy New Year!
