During her talk she will share her journey with us and how through it all, she never gave up hope. Prayer teams are available following the meal.

HISTORY of Antelope Valley Chapter of Magnificat

(Diocese of Los Angeles, California) Established 2011.  After a year of prayer, listening for guidance from the Holy Spirit and fellowship with many women, the first Antelope Valley Magnificat Meal was held on May 31st, 2008, the feast of the Visitation.  We met at the John P. Eliopulos Center in Lancaster.  One hundred and forty three guests attended.  Our speaker was Karen Moses.

Through the months of prayer and preparation things that seemed difficult to us fell together in simple ways thanks to the Holy Spirit who was always with us providing assistance.

Forming a Service Team was one of our first duties and again through the prompting of the Holy Spirit six women volunteered at one prayer meeting.  We only needed five but the Holy Spirit thought six would be perfect and it was.

These women with a few exceptions served on the Service Team for 12 years.  The original team wa blessed with Rita Trabold, Christine Anderson, Joan Brautigam, Dorothy Schoespner, Marie Flores, Mary Qening.  The COVID Pandemic in 2020 brought a hiatics to our meals but not for long since a new service team was formed in 2022.  God was waiting for us and He is the reason we come together.
