In these words of the Magnificat, Mary proclaimed to Elizabeth her gratitude for the wonderful action of God in her life.  Please join us at a breakfast for women where we will share together in that same spirit of gratitude and praise of God.  After the meal, there will be a time of prayer for the needs of all present and an opportunity to hear Karen share his experience of the transforming love of Christ and Living the Discerning Life.

Please plan to come and bring a friend to rejoice in the presence of the Lord.
