Magnificat Prayer Breakfast

Hosted by the Mary’s Garden Lexington Chapter of Magnificat

9:00 am – noon

There will be an optional Mass at 8:00 am at St. Leo Parish
Versailles, KY
Everyone is Welcomed


Breakfast Location:
Saint Leo Parish Hall
295 Huntertown Road
Versailles, KY 40383


Guest Speaker: Debora Neil

Deborah Neil served in the United States Navy. She is from a family of 5 children in Kalamazoo Michigan where she attended many years of Catholic School.  Today, she works in Lexington and is very active in her home Parish at Winchester.  This beautiful woman of God is also the full time care giver of her saintly mother. Deborah serves with joy, smile and peace, but it all came with life struggles and challenges.

Leaving family and home at age 18, Deborah longed for her family and stability.  She eventually joined the Military and married an Army man she met through SCUBA diving in Hawaii.  However, the military family culture did not support her faith and lacked the stability she craves. Every 2 years or less she had to move with the military, coping with different quarters, jobs, people and all that goes with that. Eventually, she succumbed to clinical depression and later sought medical assistance after the birth of her beloved daughter. But it was not until the Lord intervened and came to her rescue that she was completely healed and set free.  In her own words, “What I needed was reconciliation and forgiveness. A return to the family of God, joy, peace of heart, and celebration of all God’s gifts.”

Whatever your crosses and quest, Come and hear the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ in the personal testimony of God’s work in the life of this amazing woman of God and never be the same.
