Joyce Krug To Speak At Magnificat May 2

Published April 9, 2009

The speaker will be Joyce Krug, a wife and mother of three children. She and her husband faced a challenging time in the spring of 1997 when their youngest son, a college junior, was critically injured in a car accident. Arriving at the hospital, the couple was led by the Holy Spirit to trust and surrender to a loving God for his will in their lives. She will share the story of her son’s survival and the path of trust and hope they now live daily, especially her son.

The Magnificat meal is a time of refreshment and spiritual revitalization for women in a relaxed, prayerful atmosphere held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Killian Hall, 908 Killian Hill Road, Lilburn.

Magnificat is an international ministry to Catholic women inspired by the friendship between Mary and Elizabeth and their spirit of gratitude and praise to God. At each Magnificat there is an opportunity to hear one woman’s experience of the transforming love of Christ in her own life. In addition to the speaker’s presentation, there is a music ministry, a time of intercessory prayer and an opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation afterward. The Atlanta Joyful Visitation chapter of Magnificat has been hosting quarterly breakfasts for women for over 15 years.

The cost is $10 per person and advance reservations are on sale now—requests must be postmarked by April 22. Seating is limited. To make a reservation, please send name, address, telephone number and parish name, along with a check payable to Magnificat Joyful Visitation, to Lynda Cupell, 2140 Briarwillow Drive, NE, Atlanta, GA 30345. No ticket will be returned. Check-in will be at the door the day of the breakfast for those with reservations. No new reservations can be made at the door.

Priests and religious are invited to the Magnificat breakfast on a complimentary basis, but reservations are still requested for planning purposes.

There is no child care available. 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. Those attending are encouraged to carpool and arrive early. Catholic books and religious articles are available for sale before and after the meal.
