IA, Sioux City

Welcome from Northwest Iowa!

We welcome you to the webpage of Northwest Iowa Chapter: Mary, Undoer of Knots. These are exciting times that we live in and Magnificat was begun in 1981 for such a time as this. There are now over 100 chapters throughout the United States and its territories and in many foreign countries.

Magnificat Meal

Saturday, March 11
10:00 am-12:30 pm

Resurrection of Our Lord Catholic Church
202 W Elm Ave, Pocahontas, IA 50574


Our Guest Speaker: Julie Nelson

A true, small town Iowa love story, Julie and her husband, Lynn, met on a blind date their high school sophomore year. Married 40 years (woot!), they have four children and three babes in Heaven. A self-described ambient introvert and a Catholic “passionista,” Julie loves a good glass of wine made extra special in the company of friends. Julie is humbled to be speaking with you for “There are no strangers here, just friends you haven’t met” ~ Roald Dahl. Loving God’s sense of humor, Julie is a former nurse who now is Co-Host of Catholic Women Now weekly radio program. Her happy place is being surrounded with her family especially by the beach or the lake. Julie is a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in West Des Moines.

Personal Prayer Ministry is available by the Magnificat Service Team.
Confessions will not be available at this event.
Religious books and CD’s are available at the end of the day.

Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of adults, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children under the age of 14 not be in attendance.
