The Magnificat Mothers’ Club provides opportunities to meet other moms and serve the school at the same time.
Here is a rundown of this year’s activities. Questions? Ask MC President Mary Ellen Huesken, maryellenhuesken[at]gmail[dot]com.

Moriah House

Joyce Bauer | jmkbauer[at]gmail[dot]com
Lisa Marshall | lisa_marshall2014[at]icloud[dot]com

Monthly, first Saturday and last Sunday

Once a month, Magnificat mothers and daughters serve breakfast and once a month they serve dinner at this West Side Catholic Center shelter for homeless women and children. Many volunteers are needed for this rewarding ministry.

Mothers In Prayer

Mary Montforton Meler | mhmeler[at]hotmail[dot]com

Prayer is our most powerful gift. This email prayer chain will pass along requests for prayers for members of the Magnificat community who need to be lifted up. Feel free to ask Mary Meler to forward requests!

One-Time Events

Moms’ Night Out

Lee Mylonas | lmylonas[at][dot]com
Paula Thompson | pathompson[at]wowway[dot]com

Don’t miss this meet and greet. It’s a great opportunity to mingle with friends and learn about volunteer opportunities. Not able to volunteer this year? Come to the party anyway and treat yourself to a relaxing evening with other Magnificat moms. This is the fall social you won’t want to miss!

Holly Market

Melissa Coughlin | melissa.coughlin[at]oh.rr[dot]com


December 3, 2015

Find the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for friend, in-law, or teacher. Vendors will be selling creative and interesting gifts. Grab your friends and join us for a girls’ night out of fun and fabulous shopping. Volunteers will help with set up and with registering guests.

ASD (All School Dance) Coat Check

Amy Bornhorstamyborny[at]me[dot]com

Mothers help bring order to the chaos of checking coats, high heels, blue blazers, handbags and even the occasional to-go box at the annual all-school dance in January.

Dad Prom

Therese Konradmtheresekonrad[at]gmail[dot]com

March 13, 2016

The Mothers’ Club helps organize this highlight of the four years, when senior girls get to spend a magical evening with their first true loves—their dads! We collect childhood photos of girls with their fathers or special friends and help decorate the banquet hall.

Spring Luncheon

This spring soiree brings together mothers and daughters in a lovely celebration of our special bond.
