Ann is the wife of Paul and mother to Marlaena and James. Her family is her greatest joy and gift from God. They reside in Ann’s childhood home, North of Kearney, which is the former St Mary’s Prairie Center Rectory. She holds degrees in Theology, and Theater and Journalism from Creighton University, and received her teaching certificate from University of Nebraska, Kearney. Currently she is teaching theology at Kearney Catholic High School, and has previously been a Youth Minister and a Day Care Provider. Ann really enjoys teaching theology because, as she tells her students, she “gets to talk about Jesus all day”. Her favorite Bible verse is James 4:8 “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” and her favorite hymn is “Here I Am, Lord”. Her witness testimony is titled “I Choose Grace.”

HISTORY of Mary, Full of Grace Chapter
[Diocese of Grand Island, Nebraska]
The Mary, Full of Grace Chapter of Magnificat grew out of the hearts of the women in Kearney. Janey Dubas, one of our foundresses, was serving as the President of “Aglow International” women’s group in Nebraska, an ecumenical organization focused on fellowship between different faiths. She, along with Kay Wheeler of Ogalala, felt a desire for this same spirit among the Catholic women in our community. In 2001, with permission to proceed from Fr. Torpey, they set out on a new adventure. But things were put on hold in 2002 when Janey was diagnosed with breast cancer. The LORD asked her to offer up her suffering for the success of the new women’s group. During this time another women entered the journey, Jean Ross. Together, through prayer and faith sharing, they chose to contact the Magnificat Central Service Team. After several years of work, the chapter was finally able to complete the legal paperwork and was incorporated as the Mary, Full of Grace Magnificat Chapter. We were blessed to install officers at Mass on July 13, 2007, and to serve our first meal on Dec 15 that same year.
Our first officers were:
Coordinator: Janey Dubas
Assistant Coordinator: Jean Ross
Secretary: Jill Stump
Historian: Eileen Dakan
Treasurer: Margaret Messbarger
Spiritual Director: Fr Ted Nekoliczak
Our LORD has blessed us with 10 years of service to the wonderful women of the Kearney area. We give thanks, and ask that He bless us with many more years of service.
