Our Speaker: Shirley Levy Dupre
Shirley was born in Metairie, Louisiana. She was raised in a large Catholic family (11 children) where the faith was very much a part of everyday life.
She was educated in Catholic schools all her life beginning with St. Louis King of France, followed by Mount Carmel Academy, then St. Mary’s Dominican College. Upon graduating from college, she and Arthur were married at St. Louis King of France where they both attended elementary school.
Arthur and Shirley have been married for 39 years and have 11 children and 19 grandchildren. They work in marriage ministry by mentoring and preparing engaged couples for marriage in the Evenings for the Engaged program. They also speak on Willwoods marriage retreats and Evenings of Supper and Substance.
For the last 20 years she has volunteered at Mount Carmel Academy as a prayer group leader in their weekly Come, Lord Jesus program.
Shirley’s life is a testament that God is faithful and never abandons us. She says when we keep our eyes focused on Jesus, we can do the impossible! Come be uplifted by what the power of God can do in our lives.
Personal Prayer ministry is available after the meal.
Religious books and CD’s are available at the end of the meal.
Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions, it is respectfully asked that children not attend.

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.”
