Magnificat Prayer Breakfast
Hosted by Our Lady of the Lake Huron Chapter of Magnificat
Saturday, September 14, 2019
9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Doors open at 9 am. We do not assign seats so arrive early.
2270 Hayes Ave.
Fremont, OH 43420
Guest Speaker: Pat Higginbotham
Although raised in a church-going Methodist home, Pat Higginbotham grew into a “lukewarm” Christian as a young adult. Years after she married, she converted to the Catholic faith and endured a period of trial when her weakened faith was sorely challenged by life’s circumstances.
Thankfully, the Lord placed her family in a charismatic parish community of sincere believers where she was first introduced to the Third Person of the Trinity. This was the beginning of a relationship with the Holy Spirit that changed her focus on life, ignited a desire to read scripture, opened her mind and heart to the healing ministry, and propelled her into the Lord’s service in the power of the Holy Spirit. It was also when she discovered the Mother of Jesus.
Pat and her husband, Chuck, have been married 45 years, and have three grown children and almost 11 grandchildren. For many years, Pat was a prayer group leader and also taught religion at the local Catholic school. She now serves as a cantor and lector in her parish and as the coordinator of the Morgantown Magnificat in West Virginia and regional representative for Region 6 of the International Magnificat Ministry to Catholic Women. She continues to pray for healing with those who ask.
Join us on Sept. 14 to hear Pat’s story of growth and transformation manifested through the power of the Holy Spirit.

HISTORY of Our Lady of the Lake Huron Chapter
[Diocese of Toledo, Ohio]
The Huron Chapter of Magnificat, also known as Our Lady of the Lake Chapter, was founded in 2006 to serve women in the northern part of the Toledo Catholic Diocese. We currently meet quarterly in Fremont, O., for a breakfast, praise and worship, prayer, and a talk by a woman who tells how God has worked in her life. At our Magnificat meals, we try to provide something for each woman to take home with her by offering a packet of spiritual reading at each place setting.
Our chapter grew out of a prayer group that had gathered weekly in Huron, O., for more than 30 years. We decided to form a chapter of Magnificat as we realized the need to share our love of Jesus Christ with more Catholic women. At our first Magnificat meal on February 3, 2007, Donna Jones of Detroit shared the story of how she and her husband, Alex, a former Pentecostal minister, came into the Catholic Church. Since then, we have had heard many other stories of faith from some remarkable women. We record each of the talks and make CDs of them, including the most recent, available for purchase.
In addition to gathering quarterly for the Magnificat meal, we also host an annual retreat each January and seek to promote opportunities for spiritual growth in and around the diocese.
