        Our Lady Queen of Angels Chapter is blessed to bring you Fr. Donald Calloway in his first Magnificat Los Angeles visit.  Everywhere he speaks,  people of all ages are moved by his own radical story from a life plagued  with anger, addiction, and crime.
        Born in Dearborn, Michigan, Fr. Calloway started life as a normal child  who then became  a high school dropout, was kicked out of a foreign country, institutionalized twice and thrown in jail multiple times.  
        By the power of intercessory prayer on his behalf, he was led to discover Our Blessed Mother Mary and had a radical conversion experience.   He went on to earn degrees from Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC, and the International Marian Research Institute in Dayton, Ohio.  In 2003, he was ordained at the Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts and  is  a  member of the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception.  He is the author of national bestselling books including his own conversion story “No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy”.
     Other works include include books: The Immaculate Conception in the Life of the Church (Marian Press, 2004) and The Virgin Mary and Theology of the Body (Marian Press, 2005). He is also the author of Purest of All Lilies: The Virgin Mary in the Spirituality of St. Faustina (Marian Press, 2008) and Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest (Marian Press, 2013). Fr. Calloway’s latest book is titled Marian Gems: Daily Wisdom on Our Lady. 
      This is a rare opportunity for Fr. Calloway to come to Magnificat in the L.A. Archdiocese. Invite everyone! Be inspired by this 21st Century priest bearing witness to the reality of God.    

Magnificat is a  ministry to Catholic women.  Its purpose is to help Catholic women open more and more 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 ofsalvation.  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"
