Guest Speaker: Irene Bland
Irene Bland knows that through her life’s journey, God has been with her every step of the way – even when she was running in the other direction. A cradle Catholic who was baptized in the Holy Spirit in high school, Irene says the choices she made as a college student diluted her spiritual well-being, and when her first marriage ended in divorce, she grew angry with God and became a prodigal daughter.
By God’s grace, however, several spiritual experiences drew Irene back to the Lord and His merciful forgiveness. “I realized the treasures God offers in the Catholic Church and the Holy Spirit lit the fire under me to live my life following His guidance.”
Through marriage, divorce, single life, bankruptcy, annulment, another marriage, four miscarriages, widowhood, and finally an equally yoked marriage, Irene has come to rely on the Holy Spirit for all things.
Now married to David Bland, Irene works part-time for the Ministry to Catholic Charismatic Renewal as office manager and is a self-employed graphic designer. She also is a member of Epiphany of the Lord Parish in Toledo, where she is a Eucharistic minister and parish app/webmaster. Together, David and Irene lead a charismatic prayer group that meets in the MCCR chapel at St. Jerome Parish in Walbridge. During their winters in Florida, they also are involved with St. Ann Parish in Haines City, and participate in a charismatic prayer group in Winter Haven.
We do not assign seats so arrive early to check in at the Reservation Table and find seat(s) before the program begins.

HISTORY of Our Lady of the Lake Huron Chapter
[Diocese of Toledo, Ohio]
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 and a traveling bookstore from Churchill’s Religious Goods and Gifts in Toledo. .
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.
