What MAGNIFICAT Is
We are a private association of the faithful within the Catholic
Church under the jurisdiction of the local ordinary. The mother chapter began in 1981 at the encouragement of Archbishop
Philip M. Hannan and Auxiliary Bishop Stanley
J. Ott of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. We were born out of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal
and are nurtured by it.
Our purpose is to be a means
throughout which Catholic women who have been awakened by the Holy Spirit operating in their lives can share with others the
good news of salvation and impart the Holy Spirit to one another.
What MAGNIFICAT Does
We Seek to minister to Catholic women by:
- sponsoring MAGNIFICAT
prayer meals throughout the year, and
- providing other opportunities for spiritual
growth, such as retreats, Life in the Spirit seminars, Intercessory Prayer groups.
