Anjulina’s Catering
2270 Hayes Ave.

Guest Speaker: Nikki Bruni

We are sorry to report that our April 25 breakfast with Nikki Bruni has been canceled because of concerns about the coronavirus. Thankfully, Nikki has agreed to return to speak at our Nov. 7 breakfast, but we will leave her information here until it is time to update the site for our Sept. 5 breakfast. Nikki, a recent convert to the Catholic faith, is a wife and mother who is head-over-heels in love with Jesus and His Church. After straying far from God in her 20s and 30s, she began to find her way back to God through the Methodist and evangelical churches. In 2009, Nikki got involved in pro-life work, eventually becoming director of Pittsburgh’s 40 Days for Life. She has since led 20 consecutive 40 Days campaigns.

In 2012, while praying the Rosary in front of a Planned Parenthood center,  Nikki became convinced of the truth of Catholicism, and through God’s amazing grace, was received into the Church in 2013.

A part-time hairdresser who volunteers her time coordinating 40 Days for Life,  Nikki holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from Carnegie Mellon University and enjoys using her artistic talents to glorify God.  Her paintings, “Memorial of Mercy,” “The Innocents,” and “The Pieta,” are tributes to the lives lost to abortion. All three have traveled to many churches.

HISTORY of Our Lady of the Lake Huron Chapter

[Diocese of Toledo, Ohio] Est. 2006

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.
