HISTORY of Our Lady of Fatima Chapter of Magnificat, San Angelo,Texas
Anita Felan, the founding Coordinator has shared the following history of how Our Lady of Fatima Chapter got started. Sandy Seidel and Anita traveled to a Magnificat Breakfast in Grapevine, Texas in 2009 and were impressed by the strong spiritual feelings felt at this breakfast which included Holy Mass, reconciliation and personal prayer after the meal. Sandy and Anita shared their thoughts and feelings about this wonderful experience going home. Anita started praying many, many rosaries to our Blessed Mother for guidance and discernment for the possibility of starting a chapter in honor of the Blessed Mother.
In 2009 she mailed the application to form a chapter in San Angelo, Texas. She followed all the guidelines with the help and guidance of Father David Herrera, her parish priest, Bishop Michael Pfiffer, and Daniel and Sandy Seidel, Charismatic Liaisons of the Diocese.
The hardest challenge was to get women to commit to this holy project. After much consultation with the Central Service Team from Louisiana and unceasing prayer, she finally heard Our Mother whisper “Ask Me.” Our Lady kept bringing her names until she had her Advisory Team : April McGarry, Ilda Rodarte, Lucy DeLa Cerda, Johanna De Hoyos, Deborah Montano, Betty Rodriguez and Anita as head of the team, all of these ladies were chosen by our Blessed Mary. ALL these prayerful ladies said “YES.”
The Advisory Team held monthly meals and would pray the “Memorare” and the holy rosary with all the ladies attending, for help in selecting the Service Team. The Service Team selected : Roxanne Adame, Betty Rodriguez, Mary Padilla, Vicky Rivero and Elvira Gonzales.
Each woman on the Advisory and Service Teams was selected by our Blessed Mother, who placed their names in our hearts and minds.
Our Lady of Fatima Chapter had its first Magnificat meal on November 16, 2019 at Holy Angels Parish Hall with 200 women in attendance and listened to our speaker Bishop Michael Sis giving testimony on how the Blessed Mother has worked in his life!
