OUR GUEST SPEAKER: Kimberly Mouledoux

Kimberly Mouledoux was born in New York City in the Bicentennial Year of 1976.
Kimberly started playing piano at the age of 4. In the 4th grade, she also started learning the French horn, which eventually led to her realizing music was her gift. She attended Mannes the College of Music in New York City where she earned a Bachelor of Music, intending to play French Horn in movie soundtracks. She taught herself how to play the guitar and studied with a voice teacher from the Manhattan School of Music, hoping to become a famous pop-star singer. Instead, she fell in love and married a Southern Catholic gentleman named Guy and moved to New Orleans in 2000. They have five children: Robert (18), Samantha (16), Spencer (14), Guy (12), and Henry (10).  Between 2000 and 2019, Kimberly shared her musical gifts with the Episcopal Church in which she was born and raised . She moved to the Southern Baptist Church and was received into the Catholic Church in 2019. The Mouledoux Family are members of St. Angela Merici Church, where Kimberly serves as the Music Director. She is also the Music Teacher at St. Angela Merici School for grades Pre-K3 through 2nd grade, the Children’s Choir Director, and the Middle School Praise Team Director. Kimberly is currently working towards her Master of Arts in Pastoral Leadership at Notre Dame Seminary. When she is not working or studying, she can be found baking bread and sweet treats for her family and swinging on the swing in her prayer garden.

HISTORY of Magnificat Metairie, Mother Chapter

(Archdiocese of New Orleans)
The first Magnificat Breakfast was held in New Orleans, LA on Oct. 7, 1981. During the next 6 years expansion of the ministry took place necessitating division of duties between two teams: a central service team to concentrate on expansion and a Metairie service team to plan the MAGNIFICAT Meal locally and have the privilege of being called the “Mother Chapter.”
