HISTORY Morning Star Chapter of Magnificat
In late 1993, Mary Harper saw a shop on EWTN about Magnificat. She made an inquiry and received information about starting a chapter in Lincoln. Mary shared this information with a Prayer Group that ws meeting in the basement of St. Mary’s Church downtown Lincoln Ne. In 1994 about 20 women came together and started praying on regular basis to determine if the was God’s will to start a chapter. After discerning it was, five women were chosen to be on the first Service Team. They were, Joan Campbell, Betsy Dalton, Mary Harper, Marian Kozisek, and Carolyn May.
Father Nicholas Baker had bee praying with group at St. Mary’s and the five asked if he would be their Spiritual Advisor. He joyfully agreed and requested Bishop Bruskewitz to approved a chapter in the Lincoln Diocese. Bishop Bruskewitz prayed and reviewed the information and appointment was set for Mary Harper and Father baker to meet with him. In 1995 a letter of approval was given by Bishop Bruskewitz .the Group of twenty plus women prayed further and it was decide the chapters Marian would be the Morning Star chapter.
