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 Charismatic Renewal, and has been a focus for unity among women in the Church. It’s not about inflicting guilt, but meeting people where they are, 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.

“My soul magnifies the Lord, my spirit finds joy in God my Savior…
God who is mighty has done great things for me, holy is His name.” Luke 1:46-49
