Our Next Meal

Hosted by Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapter

Saturday, November 18, 2017

9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Embassy Suites Anaheim-South
11767 Harbor Blvd
Garden Grove, CA 92840


Guest Speaker: Sonja Corbitt


God’s Promise & Power: “My Word Goes Out … It Shall Not Return to Me Empty but Shall Do My Will!”  Isaiah 55:11


Magnificat is pleased to welcome Sonja Corbitt, the “Bible Study Evangelista”, regular guest on EWTN, author, speaker, and creator of LOVE the Word Bible study and Mary Journal. Sonja is a Catholic scripture teacher with a story teller’s gift – a Southern belle with a warrior’s heart and a poet’s pen.

A Carolina native raised as an evangelical Baptist before converting to Catholicism, Sonja now shares her passion for the scriptures by weaving the Word of God with her own experiences to illustrate how the Holy Spirit flows through our lives in relationships, prayer, and especially in times of suffering. She shares how God’s work in her “father wound” led her into the Catholic Church and full-time ministry. Hers is a story of God’s healing touch through a daily walk with Him in the Bible. Through her powerful personal story Sonja shows us how to put on the armor of Christ and learn to live fearlessly, love with abandon, and embrace life with confidence.

Sonja is the host of the Bible Study Evangelista Show. She is in formation as a Third Order Carmelite, a columnist at The Great Adventure Bible Study blog, a contributor to Magnificat publication, and the author of Unleashed, Fearless, Ignite and Alive. Sonja lives in Tennessee with her husband, Bob, with whom she home schools two sons. Find out more at  Come and bring a friend to be blessed!

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.
