Nothing is Impossible for God … The Power of a Humble Heart!


 Magnificat is pleased to welcome Louise Allard, RN, Missionary, Teacher, Human Rights Advocate, and Founder of Alliance for Life International, a faith-based, educational and charitable human rights organization.   A woman of great courage, Louise left the security of home and community to answer the Lord’s call to help suffering mothers and babies in Africa.  Her inspiring testimony is the story of her gradual surrender to God’s will, and how Our Lord equipped her and provided for all her needs along the way!

A Registered Nurse for over 45 years, Louise’s deep faith in Jesus Christ has led her to the heart of Africa, where she established multiple projects, including equipping a rural hospital to perform cesarean sections and save mother and baby lives; Establishing a Pregnancy Resource Center; and most recently the Kibaale Medical Project: to build a faith-based University Teaching Hospital in the remote outskirts of Uganda.

Originally from Quebec, Canada, Louise has a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and an M.A. in International Human Rights. A Certified Teacher Trainer, Louise attends the annual UN’s Commission on the Status of Women. Read more about her work at

With each open door God used Louise to fulfill His ultimate plan.  Through her yes the Lord brought forth the most unexpected and amazing grace!  Come and bring a friend to be inspired!

HISTORY of Orange Diocese “Queen of Peace” Magnificat Chapter

Est. 1992

A group of women attending the SCRC conference heard a priest speaking on Magnificat, A Ministry to Catholic women in 1991. Pat Rensing, Anita Williams, Billie Walter, and Barbara Clark were touched by the Holy Spirit to begin Magnificat in the Orange Diocese. They eventually contacted Fr. Raymond Skonezny to seek the bishop’s permission to begin a chapter and to pray about finding a fifth member, Kathleen Beckman, for the service team.

Bishop McFarland reviewed the statutes and quickly approved Magnificat for the Orange Diocese. The first OC Magnificat Prayer Breakfast took place at Holy Family Cathedral Parish Hall, Orange, CA in February 1992 with several hundred women attending a potluck style prayer breakfast with a ticket price of $2.00. The chapter continued to grow  as they held prayer breakfasts from parish to parish. With increasing membership, they outgrew the parish hall venue and began to host the Prayer Breakfasts at a large hotel to accommodate up to 700 attendees at some meals.

Since its inception, our chapter has hosted a quarterly Meal which continues to touch hearts. In the words of Mary’s Magnificat, “the Almighty One has done great things” through this humble ministry.
