Guest Speaker: Suzanne Haugh
Then the angel said to Peter, “Put on your cloak and follow me.” Acts 12:8
Hoping to create an impetus for youth and young adults to explore the Catholic Christian faith through film and art, Suzanne Haugh began Goodness Reigns in 2009 by the grace of God and with the help of many. Since 2011, Goodness Reigns has held international film contests for young people and showcased their submissions during World Youth Day, from Poland to Panama. Having never made short films herself, let alone orchestrated film festivals, she has providentially relied upon the talents of the young adults she encountered. She expresses her leap of faith this way: “We do the ridiculous so God can do the miraculous.” She was inspired by her work as a journalist and teacher and by St. John Paul II and the late Cardinal John P. Foley, of Vatican communications.
Suzanne grew up in Florida and has worked in Costa Rica and Georgia. She resides in Louisville, Kentucky, with Gil, her husband of 26 years, and their three children.
She considers the Atlanta Archdiocese one of her spiritual homes, having taught journalism at St. Pius X High School and worked for The Georgia Bulletin. Today, she serves as a middle school teacher at Louisville’s Nativity Academy at St. Boniface.
Personal Prayer ministry is available after the meal by the Magnificat Service Team.
Confessions will be available at the end of the meal.
Religious books and CDs are available at the meal.
Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance.

HISTORY of Joyful Visitation Chapter of Magnificat
[for the Archdiocese of Atlanta]
Olga Myers attended her first Magnificat Breakfast while visiting her sister in Tampa, Florida in 1990. She returned to her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia filled with zeal and joy. After sharing her experience with two other women, Jan Nerone and Elyse O’Kane, they began to pray and pray and pray for discernment of God’s will in bringing Magnificat to Atlanta.
After going through formation and receiving the approval of the local bishop, the first working meeting was held on June 17, 1991. This was followed by a Presentation Tea on February 8, 1992 to introduce Magnificat Joyful Visitation Chapter to the area and to help others discover how they can be a part of this joyful ministry.
The first Magnificat Breakfast was held on May 2, 1992 at All Saints Catholic Church. The speaker was Mary Welch Rogers and over 400 women attended. The first Service Team members were Olga Myers, Jan Nerone, Ann Marie Hendriks and Judy Guilfoil. Fr. William Hickey was their Spiritual Advisor and Elyse O’Kane was placed in charge of the Music Ministry.
