HISTORY of Our Lady Queen of Families, Pikes Peak Region Chapter

[Colorado Springs Diocese]
Our Lady Queen of Families started from a desire to bring women in our parish together over a shared meal, and to celebrate our faith.  We visited many organizations to find what we were looking for.  With the power of Google and a list of desires we found Magnificat. We attended the National Charismatic Conference in Denver in 2013 and met Kathy MacInnis, the Magnificat Central Service Team Coordinator. Magnificat was born out of the Charismatic Renewal, a new idea for most of us in the group.  Through Praise and Worship, Life in the Spirit Seminars, and our Spiritual Advisor, Deacon Chuck Matzker, the Holy Spirit poured grace upon us and opened our hearts. We were welcomed as an official chapter on April 6, 2015.
