Our Speaker: Kitty Cleveland

                In her own words: “My primary mission as a daughter of God is to faithfully provide care and feeding of my husband Mel, and my daughter, Cecilia.  They are my life and my joy!

Second to that mission as  a lay Catholic evangelist –  that has often surprised and delighted me.”

Seventeen years ago Kitty witnessed to our Metairie Chapter.  Since then her career has taken off.  Musically and intellectually gifted and burning with love for the riches of the Catholic faith, she has spoken at 16 other Magnificat chapters besides conferences around the world.

She want to encourage people – through music, storytelling, teaching from the great Catholic spiritual writers and from on own life experience. When not ministering to her family or the faithful, she enjoys cooking, gardening, oil painting, and is currently working on her first book about her father’s unjust imprisonment and dramatic release by the U.S. Supreme Court.

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.”
