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.

Introducing our next speaker……… Sister Theresa Rutty
March 5th 2022

Our speaker is Sr. Theresa Rutty. Sister taught in the Diocese of Rochester as well as served as a Principal for five years. In 1996 she was called to Chile, South America to do mission work in a variety of capacities.  In 2011 Sister Theresa returned to Rochester and is now assisting at St. Francis Cabrini Parish.

Sister Theresa has been trained in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius (and does them in Spanish.)  She is also active in Cursillo.
