Our Speaker: Michelle Seghers

As a Cradle Catholic, Michelle Seghers has been blessed in so many ways. She grew up in a faith filled family. Throughout her childhood, Michelle was blessed with numerous amazing experiences, instilling within her an early love for the Lord and His Church. She later moved to Southern California to marry her husband, Jimmy Seghers. They planned to sail around the world on a sailboat with their, then, three children, but God only used that plan to introduce the idea of home schooling into their lives. Instead of sailing, God called Jimmy and Michelle to found Totus Ministries—leading them back to Southern Louisiana—and blessed them with a total of nine children. This year, Michelle will also be completing her 28th and final year of home schooling. In addition to her ministry at home, Michelle has been called to minister within her church community in a wide variety of ways over the years. She served at different times as the Senior High Youth Minister and the Young Adult Minister. Currently she works as the Event Coordinator for Magnificat, where her main focus is assisting in planning and implementing their International Leadership Conferences.  Michelle has spent her life helping to build the Kingdom of God and can’t wait to share how God has brought her through this lifetime journey with so much love and patience.


Personal Prayer ministry is available after the meal.
Religious books and CD’s are available at the end of the meal.

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.”
