HISTORY of Christ Our Light Chapter of Magnificat
Magnificat Palm Beach Chapter, Inc., the Christ Our Light chapter was formed on July 17, 2003, by its original coordinator, Dr. Carol Razza. The original team also featured Kate Battafarano, assistant coordinator, Marcia Kurtz, secretary and Britta Neinast as treasurer. The first Magnificat meal was held at the Airport Hilton in West Palm Beach, Florida, with over 400 in attendance.
The first faith witness was Babsie Bleasdell who spoke of the power of the Holy Spirit working in her life. After Dr. Razza stepped down, Donna Holmstrom became the coordinator. After Donna’s appointment as Regional Representative to the Finance team, the current coordinator began serving. There have been four meals every year since its inception.
One of the many talents this variety of women, who have given their fiat to Magnificat, has is writing. The team focuses on publishing written reflections during Advent, Lent and during special holy days throughout the year, all designed to bring women closer to Christ. Some of these reflections have been picked up by the central service team and published in their newsletters. This chapter strives to be a model chapter for the world.
