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.”
