Guest Speaker: Anne Hyatt

“Those Who Look to Him for Help Will Be Radiant with Joy!”   Psalm 34:5

Magnificat is pleased to welcome our own Anne Hyatt.  For all who are blessed to know her, Anne is a most treasured gift, totally self-giving as a mother, nurse, Magnificat Service Team member, and beloved sister and friend.

Anne’s inspiring story is one of many beautiful moments and memories amidst the trials, tragedies and even traumas of life.  The heartbreak of a divorce and family break up as a young girl left wounds that would follow her into her own marriage and family later in life.  But God’s grace would prevail!

At 16, Anne experienced a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit which grew into a mature relationship with Our Lord.  This not only sustained her but enriched the lives of all those she loved and walked with through life.

“He has healed the wounds of a broken little girl.  In the midst of my darkest moments Jesus has shown me how uniting my sorrows to His holy cross can be transformative.  Out of suffering, he has given me the gift of great joy!”

Anne has over 42 years of experience as a RN specializing in Neonatal Intensive Care and Case Management.  She is a member of St. Anthony de Padua parish, and a devoted mother of her 27-year-old son Matthew.  Come and bring a friend to be blessed and inspired!

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. Kathleen Beckman was later added to the service team.

Bishop McFarland 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, eventually moving to a hotel to accomodate the growing ministry.

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.
