Guest Speaker: Caroline Dirkes

Caroline Dirkes’ motto is “you need to do the ridiculous to see the miraculous!”  She will have you laughing as she shares the story of how she found her faith at 19 through a series of unusual events.

As co-founder with her husband, Dan, of 2Tim4 Ministries, Caroline gives parish missions and speaks at Catholic conferences throughout the U.S. and Canada, including the 2016 Holy Toledo Conference in our Toledo Diocese. Although active in evangelization and youth ministry for 23 years, she considers her greatest achievement to be raising her five children.

Caroline is the former eastern regional director for Life Teen, director of youth ministry for the Archdiocese of Newark, and director of evangelization at St. Joseph Parish in Hillsborough, N.J.  She also served on the National Service Committee for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal for nine years. A graduate of the Franciscan University of Steubenville who now lives in Ann Arbor, Mich., Caroline received the National Evangelization Team Distinguished Alumni Award in 2013 for her ongoing commitment to evangelization.

No matter your age, you will be inspired by Caroline to go deeper in your faith and know that nothing is impossible for God. This will be a great opportunity to invite a daughter, granddaughter, niece, or friend 14 and older to join us. Please pray about doing that and register today!

HISTORY of Our Lady of the Lake Huron Chapter

[Diocese of Toledo, Ohio]
Est. 2006

The Huron Chapter of Magnificat, also known as Our Lady of the Lake Chapter, was founded in 2006 to serve women in the northern part of the Toledo Catholic Diocese. We currently meet quarterly in Fremont, O., for a breakfast, praise and worship, prayer, and a talk by a woman who tells how God has worked in her life. At our Magnificat meals, we try to provide something for each woman to take home with her by offering a packet of spiritual reading at each place setting.

Our chapter grew out of a prayer group that had gathered weekly in Huron, O., for more than 30 years. We decided to form a chapter of Magnificat as we realized the need to share our love of Jesus Christ with more Catholic women. At our first Magnificat meal on February 3, 2007, Donna Jones of Detroit shared the story of how she and her husband, Alex, a former Pentecostal minister, came into the Catholic Church. Since then, we have had heard many other stories of faith from some remarkable women. We record each of the talks and make CDs of them, including the most recent, available for purchase.

In addition to gathering quarterly for the Magnificat meal, we also host an annual retreat each January and seek to promote opportunities for spiritual growth in and around the diocese.
