HISTORY of Our Mary, Servant of the Lord Chapter

[in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin]

Many of us who attended “Women’s Aglow” meetings, attended a Magnificat Meal in West Bend, WI a few times.  We were very impressed with it all!  All Catholic Women coming together in different stages of their spiritual life to grow spiritually!  Ten of us got together to pray about if there was a need for a Magnificat Chapter in Kenosha/Racine area.  On June 1, 2004 we all agreed it was needed.  We had 7 more prayer meetings to pray and got in touch with the Central Service Team.  On January 5, 2005 we became a Magnificat Chapter!
