Magnificat Prayer Breakfast
Hosted by the Gentle Woman, Mother of Mercy
Buffalo, N.Y. Chapter of Magnificat
Saturday, June 15, 2019
9:45 am – 12:15 pm
(registration 9:15 am)
2040 Walden Avenue
Cheektowaga, N.Y. 14225
Guest Speaker: Eileen Benthal
Come to the March breakfast to meet Eileen, a certified professional coach, writer and national speaker who will share her inspiring story of her journey of hope with her daughter Johanna. As a baby, Johanna was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease which caused her to have over 90 surgeries in 18 years. Eileen’s recurring nightmares of treading water in a cold, dark ocean with her infant daughter in her arms were changed to a vision of hope as a voice from heaven called her to let go and trust that they would not drown. The voice promised Eileen that she would “learn a new way of breathing, how to breathe underwater.” Join us on June 15th to hear a timely message of hope! And, please bring a friend who needs to hear this message, also!
“So fix our eyes, not on what is seen but on what is unseen,
since what is seen is temporary and what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians: 4
Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distraction, it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance. Also please be aware that subject matter may not be suitable for children.
