Magnificat is a  ministry to Catholic women.  Its purpose is to help Catholic women open more fully to the Holy Spirit through a deeper commitment of their lives to Jesus as Lord, and to impart the Holy Spirit to one another through their love, service, and sharing the good news of salvation.  It thus provides opportunities which will foster a desire to grow in holiness.

We serve the entire Archdiocese of Los Angeles and take the name "Our Lady, Queen of Angels"

Dear Magnificat sisters and brothers,

We pray all of you remain safe, healthy, and steadfast in prayer during this time we find ourselves tested in many ways.  We place you under Our Lady's protection from the plague and pray for perseverance to keep doing what we are supposed to do:  pray without ceasing for healing and peace.  

You are welcome to join our Ministry  on Friday, July 10 at 3:30PM to pray for your special intentions in a Divine Mercy Rosary on Zoom.  If you are not on our email list, please contact to be added to the Zoom invitation.


We are thrilled to report that Fr. Jim Gehl is feeling much better as his cancer marker has dropped dramatically.  Although he put in his request to retire August 31, 2020, he is now staying on as Pastor of St. Euphrasia for another year. His new retirement date is June 30, 2021, which was foretold to him by Our Blessed Mother during an encounter with Mary in Medjugorje!

His doctor has called Fr. Jim's recovery a miracle! We know that his improved condition is due to all your prayers, for which we are deeply thankful. Fr. Jim gave his vocation testimony at our Magnificat meal on February 1, 2020. It was our last event before the pandemic caused public closures.


Cancelled Magnificat summer meal July 18, 2020

In keeping with The Archdiocese of Los Angeles' actions, city and state government Covid-19 regulations,  and L.A. Board of Education emergency policy,  our summer Magnificat prayer meal scheduled for Saturday, July 18, 2020 has been cancelled.  A number of Catholic churches have cancelled events until September or up to  2021, therefore, our Ministry is in agreement to be in compliance with church directives.

The November 14, 2020 Magnificat prayer meal is tentatively scheduled to take place.  However, it is subject to change or cancellation due to pandemic conditions in the months ahead.  

As always, you and yours remain in our prayers.  Peace be with you.
