Magnificat is a ministry of lay women. . .
We are so happy to welcome you to the Magnificat International Catholic Prayer Ministry and our own Fort Myers, Florida chapter, Mother of Mercy.
Magnificat, a Ministry to Catholic women is a private association of the faithful within the Catholic Church under the jurisdiction of the local ordinary. Its purpose is to help Catholic women to open more and more to the Holy Spirit through a deeper commitment of their lives to Jesus as Lord and to impart the Holy Spirit to one another by their love, service and sharing the good news of salvation. It thus provides opportunities which will foster a desire to grow in holiness.
Magnificat ministers to those women in and out of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal whose faith in the person of Jesus Christ has allowed them to believe in the activity of God’s Spirit in their lives. It also has great appeal to those women who may be struggling with faith or who have lost touch with the Church. It can be a valuable evangelistic tool.
We are comprised of local women from the Southwest Florida area: Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Naples, Lehigh Acres, Estero, Bonita Springs, Marco Island, Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Port Charlotte – and our Snow Birds from all over the US and the World!
Join us for fellowship at our meals. Please check our schedule for updates. Better yet, join our mailing list and keep informed. Thanks for stopping by and we hope to meet you soon!
