All women are invited to a breakfast sponsored by Magnificat, a ministry to Catholic women. The breakfast will be held Saturday, October 12, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM at the Holiday Inn Airport at Gulf Coast Town Center, Fort Myers. Our speaker is Catherine Dailey, Director of National Founders and Individual Gift Officer at Ave Maria University. At an early age, she had a deep compassion for Native Americans, which, after receiving a degree in Medical Dietetics, led her to work on several Indian Reservations as a community nutritionist. After years of being a non-practicing Catholic, her pursuit of God and Truth led her on an amazing journey that crisscrossed the globe, and delving into the new age movement and neo-paganism. Visits to India and Indonesia resulted in a mysterious illness that lasted two years – an apparent setback that became a blessing and a major turning point in her life. She discovered her long sought-after treasure through the Blessed Virgin Mary and returned to the Catholic Church. Advanced registration is required by mail. Seating is limited; no walk-ins. Please send a $20 check, payable to Magnificat Fort Myers, to Joanne Tarantino, 3315 Bermuda Isle Circle, Unit 128, Naples, FL 34109, 239-887-0060 or Shirley Ruehl, 11451 Pembrook Run, Estero, FL 33928, 239-949-7015.

All women are invited to a breakfast sponsored by Magnificat, a ministry to Catholic women. The breakfast will be held Saturday, August 10, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM at the Holiday Inn Airport at Gulf Coast Town Center, Fort Myers. Our speaker is Felice Gerwitz, a self-published author with award winning books, who owns the company Media Angels®, Inc. She has a ministry to moms, especially non-catholics, and hosts an online webinar, “Mommy Jammies Night.” As an education major, she planned to rise in the ranks and someday be a principal, but the Lord had other plans. After being blessed with a special needs child, she quickly learned to be resourceful and homeschooling became the only option for her. Raising children taught her many things, especially the Lord’s love, and providence in times of need. A life-changing decision brought her back to the truth that God will provide. One of her favorite verses is “…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
