A Unique Person-to-Person Ministry for Catholic Women
Magnificat is a solidly Catholic ministry; in Rochester, we are approved by the Diocese of Rochester. Magnificat is born out of the Catholic charismic renewal, and has been a focus for unity among women in the Church. It’s not about inflicting guilt, but meeting people where they’re at, like Mary did when she visited Elizabeth. Many have been wounded in some way by the Church or no longer feel a close relationship with God.
