Magnificat Prayer Breakfast
Hosted by Our Lady of the Lake Huron Chapter of Magnificat

Guest Speaker: Alicia Parkinson
We are very pleased to announce that our next breakfast Aug. 22 with Alicia Parkinson is a go. Because of the coronavirus restrictions, things will look a little different. When you arrive, we will be asking you to go directly to your table to reduce mingling. Tables will be spaced six feet apart and there will be fewer seats at each one. Meals and beverages will be served at the table, rather than buffet-style, and employees will be wearing masks and gloves. We are asking that you get your reservation in by Aug. 8 as we will not be accepting any late reservations. Also, in the event that we do not have at least 25 reservations, we will be canceling the breakfast.
Now, for a little about our speaker. Alicia Parkinson is a mother and grandmother who is confident to let her life unfold in the hands of the Holy Spirit. Strong and independent from an early age, yet unaware of her brokenness, she says she had unknowingly estranged herself from God. Eventually, in God’s time, she learned how important it is to surrender to God, and to live in interdependence with the people He brought into her life.
After earning degrees in math and education, then working in real estate, Alicia decided to pursue another degree in response to a call of the Holy Spirit. She hopes to graduate next year from St. Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology with a master’s in theology. Alicia also is in formation as a Secular Franciscan. She says this prayer sums up her life: “God, help me to know me as You know me . . . To see myself as You see me . . . So that I can become the person You created me to be.”

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.
