It takes a village to put on a Magnificat Breakfast. The breakfast only occurs four times a year, so the time spent is small when spread among many helping hands. Besides that, it’s an uplifting event and you will meet other kindred spirits! But most all, being a volunteer means working for Our Lady, Queen of Magnificat, Queen of the Universe, Mother of God, and our Mother. Wow! Just think about that for a moment! This is simply the best job you will ever have. Please prayerfully consider how you can use your talents for this very special ministry. We would love to have you join us!
Hostesses: This is really the “Hospitality” ministry. The role of a “Hostess” is to warmly welcome the attendees at her table. The breakfast may be the first ever Magnificat event for some guests and the Hostess will become the face of Magnificat to these women. By greeting our guests with cheerfulness and a heartfelt smile, it is our prayer that they will feel at home and be open to receive a word from God through the Magnificat ministry. By providing the meal, fellowship, and an inspirational speaker, we hope to fulfil both the spiritual and physical needs of our members and newcomers. Hostesses may also answer questions about Magnificat if there are guests at the table who are interested in learning more about the ministry. If you feel called to serve others, there is much joy and fulfillment to be found in this ministry. For more information please email Mary: email@example.com
