HISTORY of CENLA Magnificat
CENLA Magnificat was born out of Sue Dauzat’s desire to bring to the women of Central Louisiana the opportunity to meet together, minister to each other and to evangelize their friends. CENLA Magnificat serves the women of Central Louisiana (CENLA). “Our Lady of Prompt Succor” was added to our “official” title in 2012.
CENLA Magnificat held its first gathering on June 3, 2000. After ten years serving the women of the Diocese of Alexandria, we were “on hold” for two years but in 2012 we re-activated! The meals are held in Natchitoches, La. and in Avoyelles Parish – the Service Team felt that moving the location offers the people in the areas a better opportunity to attend. Our Diocese extends from the Mississippi River to the Sabine River — all of Central Louisiana (CENLA): comprising 13 civil parishes in Central Louisiana: Natchitoches, Winn, Caldwell, Franklin, Madison, Vernon, Rapides, Grant, LaSalle, Catahoula, Tensas, Concordia and Avoyelles. The land area of the diocese is roughly 11,108 square miles.
CENLA Magnificat partners with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of Central Louisiana (CCRC) for other events each year.
If you are in our area, we invite you to join us for our meals or events!
