Magnificat Prayer Breakfast
Hosted by the Mary, Full of Grace Chapter of Magnificat
Saturday June 22, 2019
10:00 AM to Noon
Kearney, NE 68845
Speaker: Bishop Emeritus William J. Dendinger
Bishop Dendinger’s theme is “My Road to Damascus”, a take-off on St. Paul’s journey to Damascus.
Bishop’s favorite Bible verse is Micah 6:8. It’s based on his personal motto on his Coat of Arms, “Justice with Mercy.” “As to my favorite saint, I usually refer to St. Thomas Aquinas. It’s based in my four years of theology with the Dominicans—who “adored” St. Thomas and his writings.”
We do not assign seats so arrive early to check in at the Reservation Table and find seat(s) before the program begins.
Both men and women are welcome.
Prayer support is available.
Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance.
Reservations are required no later than Wednesday June 19, 2019. Tickets are $15.00 for the general public and $10.00 for students. For Phone reservations: call Marlene Rasmussen 575 574 8183.

HISTORY of Mary, Full of Grace Chapter
[Diocese of Grand Island, Nebraska]
The Mary, Full of Grace Chapter of Magnificat grew out of the hearts of the women in Kearney. Janey Dubas, one of our foundresses, was serving as the President of “Aglow International” women’s group in Nebraska, an ecumenical organization focused on fellowship between different faiths. She, along with Kay Wheeler of Ogalala, felt a desire for this same spirit among the Catholic women in our community. In 2001, with permission to proceed from Fr. Torpey, they set out on a new adventure. But things were put on hold in 2002 when Janey was diagnosed with breast cancer. The LORD asked her to offer up her suffering for the success of the new women’s group. During this time another women entered the journey, Jean Ross. Together, through prayer and faith sharing, they chose to contact the Magnificat Central Service Team. After several years of work, the chapter was finally able to complete the legal paperwork and was incorporated as the Mary, Full of Grace Magnificat Chapter. We were blessed to install officers at Mass on July 13, 2007, and to serve our first meal on Dec 15 that same year.
Our first officers were:
Coordinator: Janey Dubas
Assistant Coordinator: Jean Ross
Secretary: Jill Stump
Historian: Eileen Dakan
Treasurer: Margaret Messbarger
Spiritual Director: Fr Ted Nekoliczak
Our LORD has blessed us with 10+ years of service to the wonderful women of the Kearney area. We give thanks, and ask that He bless us with many more years of service.
