Magnificat Prayer Breakfast
Hosted by Our Lady of the Lake Huron Chapter of Magnificat

Doors open at 9 am. We do not assign seats so arrive early.
2270 Hayes Ave.
Fremont, OH 43420
Guest Speaker: Caroline Dirkes
Caroline Dirkes’ motto is “you need to do the ridiculous to see the miraculous!” 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.
Active in evangelization and youth ministry for 23 years, 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. However, she considers her greatest achievement by far that of raising her son and three daughters. She and Dan are expecting their fifth child in January, 2018.
Because Caroline has a special gift in the area of youth ministry, we are issuing a special invitation to daughters, granddaughters, nieces, or other family members and friends age 14 and older to hear her talk on Feb. 10, 2018. Note that we are offering a special rate of $30 for you and a guest as an inducement. Please pray about reaching out to women you know who may be interested in hearing what Caroline has to say.
We do not assign seats so arrive early to check in at the Reservation Table and find seat(s) before the program begins.
Prayer teams and opportunities to receive the sacrament of reconciliation will be available following the meal.
Religious books and CD’s will be available at the meal.
Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance.

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.
