Kathy MacInnis, Magnificat Leader, To Speak Feb. 9

Published January 17, 2008

The breakfast speaker will be Kathy MacInnis, who serves as an associate member of the Magnificat central service team, the leadership team that oversees the international Catholic women’s ministry. She also founded and coordinated a Magnificat chapter in the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

She is a wife, mother and grandmother and has served as a caregiver to her father-in-law for 24 years and to her mother for 12 years. In describing her faith journey, she says the grace of God has helped her to embrace the difficulties in her life and has guided her and molded her. In addition, the transforming love of God and the love of her husband have helped to overcome her fears and have led her to recognize and to use her God-given talents to love and serve God and others. She recently experienced a miraculous healing that has changed her life.

The Magnificat meal is held at Killian Hall, which is located at 908 Killian Hill Road, Lilburn. The doors open at 9 a.m.

In addition to the breakfast and the talk by the guest speaker, the meal provides a time of praise with a music ministry, intercessory prayer, and fellowship with other women in an atmosphere of faith. There is an opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation following the breakfast. Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance.

The cost is $10 per person and reservations must be made in advance. To reserve a seat, please send name, address, phone number and parish, along with a check payable to Magnificat Joyful Visitation, to Lynda Cupell, 2140 Briarwillow Drive, NE, Atlanta, GA 30345.

In a new procedure beginning with this meal, it is no longer necessary to send a stamped, self-addressed envelope. No tickets will be mailed to attendees. Instead, those who have reservations will check in at the door the day of the meal. There is limited seating, however, and reservation requests must be postmarked by Jan. 30 to plan for the meal.

Priests and religious are invited to the meal on a complimentary basis, but reservations are still requested in order to plan appropriately.

All women are invited to attend this morning of shared faith in the spirit of the friendship reflected in the Gospel story of Mary and Elizabeth, who gave witness to God’s marvelous work in their lives and who helped one another in following God’s call.
