Guest Speaker: Sharon Lee Giganti

“For the Light Shines in the Darkness and the Darkness Has Not Overcome It!

Magnificat is pleased to welcome Sharon Lee Giganti, former Hollywood actress, radio host, and speaker committed to exposing the hidden dangers of the New Age movement and other counter-Christian ideologies.  A former “insider”, Sharon knows personally the dangers of these ideologies.  She will share her story of how God led her out of that spiritual darkness through His holy Word and brought her home to the Light and Truth of the Catholic Church.

In 1999, Sharon left Hollywood at the height of her success, (guest-starring in over 20 television shows and films) to pursue a “higher purpose”.  She had become a devotee of “A Course in Miracles”.  But, after a time of devastating loss and witnessing New Age teachings playing a role in several horrific tragedies, Sharon realized how life-threatening these occult concepts could be and returned to the Catholic Faith.

Sharon is a regular guest on Catholic Answers Live Radio and hosts a popular show entitled, “The New Age Deception”.  Her powerful message is still heard world-wide via their global re-broadcasts through EWTN. As an internationally renowned speaker seeking to help others recognize the dangers of New Age spirituality and moral relativism, Sharon has shared her knowledge and personal testimony with audiences near and far. She hopes her story will help others avert tragedies while offering the only sure remedy; knowledge of the One, True God, His real Son Jesus Christ, and the authentic revelation of His Word!

HISTORY of Orange Diocese “Queen of Peace” Magnificat Chapter

Est. 1992

A group of women attending the SCRC conference heard a priest speaking on Magnificat, A Ministry to Catholic women in 1991. Pat Rensing, Anita Williams, Billie Walter, and Barbara Clark were touched by the Holy Spirit to begin Magnificat in the Orange Diocese. They eventually contacted Fr. Raymond Skonezny to seek the bishop’s permission to begin a chapter and to pray about finding a fifth member, Kathleen Beckman, for the service team.

Bishop McFarland reviewed the statutes and quickly approved Magnificat for the Orange Diocese. The first OC Magnificat Prayer Breakfast took place at Holy Family Cathedral Parish Hall, Orange, CA in February 1992 with several hundred women attending a potluck style prayer breakfast with a ticket price of $2.00. The chapter continued to grow  as they held prayer breakfasts from parish to parish. With increasing membership, they outgrew the parish hall venue and began to host the Prayer Breakfasts at a large hotel to accommodate up to 700 attendees at some meals.

Since its inception, our chapter has hosted a quarterly Meal which continues to touch hearts. In the words of Mary’s Magnificat, “the Almighty One has done great things” through this humble ministry.
