Magnificat is a Ministry to Catholic women; a private association of the faithful within the Catholic Church under the jurisdiction of the Lincoln Diocese. Women of other Christian faiths are invited to share the prayer meal.
The primary purpose of Magnificat is to help Christian women become more open to the Holy Spirit through a deeper commitment of their lives to Jesus as Lord and to impart the Holy Spirit to one another by their love, service and sharing the good news of salvation. It started in 1981 in New Orleans and has become an international ministry with chapters in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Malta, Poland and Africa.
Magnificat of Lincoln, the Morningstar Chapter, was approved by Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz and held its first prayer meal March 9, 1996. For more information visit lincolndiocese.org/diocese/lay-organizations/magnificat.
Magnificat will sponsor a retreat for women at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House in Waverly, “Be Renewed In the Holy Spirit,” Nov. 22-24. The retreat is an invitation to make or renew a deep personal commitment to Jesus Christ in openness to the Holy Spirit and His gifts. Nebraska native Sister Lucy Lukasiewicz of the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, and two others in her community, will lead the retreat.
