What is a Chapter?

By definition, a chapter is a local branch of an organization, and in this case a chapter of Magnificat is a local branch of the international Magnificat organization. Each local chapter is under the vigilance and jurisdiction of the bishop in whose diocese it operates.

What is the make-up of a chapter?

The following groups of people  are essential to initiate and carry out the chapter business:

  • Spiritual Advisor: A person approved by the local ecclesiastical authority of the Roman Catholic Church willing to be the liaison for Magnificat to the local Church.
  • Other areas of responsibility: individuals needed to serve in tasks necessary for the Magnificat Meal such as publicity, ticket sales, hospitality, decorations and music.
