9th grade theologians concluded the year by creating a prayer that reflected how they have grown, who they are, and who they want to be, while giving them the opportunity to draw connections between themselves and the powerful women of the Old and New Testaments. This assignment was inspired by Magnificat's founding principal, Sr. Bernadette Vetter, H.M. and her book "My Journey, My Prayer."

More than eighty alumnae and friends attended and were treated to complimentary samples of bone broth, noodles, and toppings from TownHall/Rebol and Swap it Healthy goody bags from Maria Hickman. We are grateful to all who made this a wonderful, worthwhile event!

Summer Immersion Trips
- Cleveland, Ohio May 30 – June 5, 2019
- Although Cleveland is the city we call home, the Cleveland Immersion gives Magnificat students the opportunity to experience the city in a new way. During the immersion, the Magnificat group will stay at the Mission House at St. Pat’s on Bridge in Ohio City and will visit various agencies and organizations in the many neighborhoods of Cleveland. Participants will learn about the realities and challenges that residents in the city of Cleveland face each day including poverty, hunger, foreclosure and homelessness. The group will also experience some of the positive stories of success and revitalization that are happening in the city.
- U.S./Mexico Border (Tucson, AZ / Agua Prieta, Mexico) June 2 - 8, 2019
- Since 1987, BorderLinks has been facilitating educational immersion trips in the Arizona-Sonora region. These immersion programs offer groups the opportunity to learn from the different actors on the U.S./Mexico Border to gain a holistic understanding of the immigration system. Students will have the chance to meet with individuals and organizations that provide basic humanitarian aid, advocate for migrant and border communities, and much more. By traveling with BorderLinks, we will have the chance to meet people that are directly affected by the current economic and immigration policies in place, and receive tools and resources to work for justice in our own community. BorderLinks works with many faith-based groups, including the Jesuit-run Kino Border Initiative. For more information visit: http://borderlinks.
- Guayaquil, Ecuador June 24 – July 1, 2019
In partnership with Rostro de Cristo, a Volunteer & Retreat Program based in Guayaquil, Ecuador for over 25 years, students and adults will experience first-hand what life is like for those living in the community of Monte Sinai, located in northwest Guayaquil. The group will have the opportunity to share in the daily lives of the community, in which the majority of inhabitants live off less than $2 a day. Every day, group members will dedicate several hours to visiting and sometimes working with residents of different areas. The group will stay at a Rostro de Cristo retreat house. One of the year-long volunteers from Rostro de Cristo will work with the Magnificat group throughout our stay and serve as the primary link between the Magnificat group and the Ecuadorian people. To learn more, please visit their website at www.rostrodecristo.org.
