Our Speaker: Denise Beyer

A parishioner of St. Anthony of Padua in Houma, has been married for 44 years to Roy. They have 4 grown children and 12 grandchildren. In 1994, during a time of questioning whether to remain in the Catholic Church, the Lord heard her cry for truth and she experienced a dramatic encounter of God’s love during mass. Two years later she would attend a Life in the Spirit Seminar and experience His Love in a new way, in the Power of the Holy Spirit! These two events have forever changed her life!

Denise previously served as the coordinator for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of Houma- Thibodaux for 7 years and liaison to Bishop Sam Jacobs for 3 years.

Denise currently serves as a member of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of New Orleans (CCRNO) Core Team for Women’s Retreats and Days of Refreshment as well as on the Steering Committee for the Southern Regional Conference. She is a cohost on Catholic Community Radio’s “Wake Up” show on Wednesday mornings at 7:00am with Jeff Blackwell and Gaby Smith. She has a live weekly call-in radio program on Radio Maria entitled, “All Who Are Thirsty Prayer Time”. In her own Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, Denise participates in a weekly prayer meeting at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Adoration Chapel as a speaker and worship facilitator.

Denise has spoken at Days of Renewal, Retreats, Conferences, Magnificat Breakfasts, and Life in the Spirit Seminars throughout southern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. She has recently gone to Brazil in conjunction with CCRNO ministries, and Seattle, WA with Hope and Purpose Ministries. It is her hope and desire to make the living Presence of Jesus and the fullness of life in the Holy Spirit known to all by proclaiming the Word of God, the richness of our Catholic faith, and the power of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit to transform lives.

“Therefore, since we have such hope, we act boldly…Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. All of us, gazing with unveiled faced on the glory of the Lord are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, as from the Lord who is the Spirit.” 2Cor. 3:12, 17-18

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.”
