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"
