WI, Kenosha/Racine

Welcome from Kenosha-Racine, Wisconsin!

We welcome you to Mary, Servant of the Lord Chapter’s webpage. These are exciting times that we live in and Magnificat was begun in 1981 for such a time as this. There are now over 100 chapters throughout the United States and its territories and in many foreign countries.

Welcome to Our Next Meal!

Hosted by the Mary, Servant of the Lord Chapter of Magnificat


9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Please arrive 15 minutes early.

St. Anne Catholic Church
9091 Prairie Ridge Blvd.
Pleasant Prairie, WI 53158

Guest Speaker: Mary Laurenzi

“We know that in everything God works for good, with those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

Mary Laurenzi is the oldest of 4 children who grew up in a loving Catholic family.  She attended church weekly, received the sacraments and attended Catholic grade school and high school in Kenosha.  She graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison, with a degree in Physical Therapy in 1983.  She married her soulmate, Dino, the following year, and together they raised 3 children and have 2 grandsons.  They belong to St. Anne Parish, which has fostered her love of her Catholic faith through small home-based group studies, Grace group studies and various Church retreats.

For Mary, her relationship with The Lord has truly been a spiritual journey over the years.  The critical illness of her father and the tragedy of a teen suicide, among other events in her life, has strengthened her relationship with God.

During her childhood years, she had more of a fear of the wrath of God, but through her spiritual journey, she has found her true God – one who is compassionate, radiates infinite love, and who is always there, waiting to be asked to draw near to her.  She has found that the more she leans on The Lord and asks for His help and guidance, the more He reveals his unceasing love, mercy and forgiveness.

It took many years for Mary to discover and develop the beautiful relationship that she has with Our Blessed Mother.  She has truly been an intercessor during many of Mary’s trials in life.  And the power of the rosary has undoubtedly been a strength for her.

Personal Prayer ministry is available after the meal.

Religious books and CD’s may be available at the meal.

Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance.

HISTORY of Our Mary, Servant of the Lord Chapter

(Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

Many of us who attended “Women’s Aglow” meetings, attended a Magnificat Meal in West Bend, WI a few times.  We were very impressed with it all!  All Catholic Women coming together in different stages of their spiritual life to grow spiritually!  Ten of us got together to pray about if there was a need for a Magnificat Chapter in Kenosha/Racine area.  On June 1, 2004 we all agreed it was needed.  We had 7 more prayer meetings to pray and got in touch with the Central Service Team.  On January 5, 2005 we became a Magnificat Chapter!
