Magnificat is a ministry to Catholic women. Its purpose is to help Catholic women 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.

The McHenry County Chapter of Magnificat was officially sanctioned by the bishop in 2001. Since that time, the chapter has consistently served the diocese by constant, committed prayer, by sponsorship of Magnificat Breakfasts, Days of Renewal, Life-in-the-Spirit Seminars and other efforts to build the Church. In November 2004, the Magnificat Breakfast invited men. Women are invited to contact the chapter to seek support, help and to offer their service in ministry.
