Rosary Blanket of Prayer
Our Chapter is assigned the 19th of the month.
The Magnificat Ministry sponsors a Rosary Blanket of Prayer in response to our Holy Father’s call to prayer. Each Chapter is assigned one day of the month for concentrated prayer, fasting, Eucharistic Adoration, Rosary, etc. Of course, we are called to pray daily, but this day should be especially designated. It can be done individually and collectively, as possible. Magnificat women and others who care to join us are invited to take part in this concerted effort. The general intentions are for a New Pentecost, the Church, Magnificat, the sanctity of life, marriage & family, and world peace.
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. Luke 1:46-47

HISTORY of Mary Queen of Humility Chapter of Magnificat; Scarborugh Maine[for the Diocese of Portland, Maine]
In Maine a group of four women had been meeting weekly to study the bible together for over 15 years. They began to pray that God would use them to start some kind of ministry for women in the state of Maine. They were also asking God what name to call their group. The original group included Cindi Schaab, Cindy Andreson, Cathy Koenig, and Rose Clark (who has passed on to God).
In April 2010, while at Mass, Cindi Schaab was given the word “Magnificat”. Excitedly, when she got home she called Cindy Andreson, one of the women in her group to tell her. Cindy Andreson, was excitedly trying to call Cindi Schaab at the very same time to tell her that she had discovered an exciting women’s ministry on the internet called “Magnificat Ministry”.
So, after contacting Kathy MacInnis in New Orleans, the formation began for Magnificat Maine. An intercessory prayer group was formed and has grown to more than 25 women who have been meeting monthly to pray since May of 2010. The service team prayerfully received from the Holy Spirit, “Mary, Queen of Humility”, for their chapter name. Father John Bacevicius, OFM was knowledgeable about Magnificat and he became our chapter’s Spiritual Advisor.
On September 8, 2015, the paperwork from the state of Maine for incorporation was approved. On September 15, 2016, the notification came through for acceptance in the Official Catholic Directory in the Portland, Maine Diocese. These were both Marian feast days. On November 7, 2016, Magnificat-Scarborough, ME Chapter was officially approved. Kathy MacIinnis poignantly revealed to the service team that this date of approval was very significant because it was her mother, Caroline’s birthday. Her mother, Ms. Caroline, had been an enthusiastic prayer intercessor for Magnificat Ministry, and Kathy said she has entrusted Magnificat-Scarborough, ME Chapter to her mother’s special intercession in Heaven.
The Holy Spirit has been forming and guiding this group each step of the way in miraculous ways. It has been a long process but God’s Holy Timing is perfect. Magnificat Maine will host their first Magnificat meal on September 9, 2017.
