HISTORY of Mother of Divine Mercy

[Diocese of Hartford, Connecticut]
Est. 2005

Mother of Divine Mercy Magnificat Chapter was established October 1, 2005 on the Feast Day of the Blessed Mother and the Holy Rosary. It was licensed officially a chapter by the State of Connecticut on October 1, 2005. The first breakfast was held on October 7, 2006, the Feast Day of the Blessed Mother and the Holy Rosary at the Clarion Hotel, now known as the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. Gloria Brophy is the Foundress of this chapter.

Mother of Divine Mercy Chapter held its last breakfast on July 22, 2017.  The Chapter cancelled the breakfast that had been scheduled for November 4, 2017 due to a scheduling conflict with the Hartford Archdiocese 1st Annual Women’s Conference.
