Magnificat Breakfast, September 15, 2018 

Join us for a morning of prayer, praise & worship, fellowship and an inspiring testimony of how God works in our lives.

 Guest Speaker: Amy DelValle

Amy is very passionate about praising and worshiping the Lord and helping others to become passionate about the Lord. Originally from New York, Amy was born into a culturally Jewish family and grew up in a very Italian neighborhood. Her family celebrated the Jewish holidays more out of tradition than religious observance, more often than not, the family had no idea what the Holy day meant. It was a time for family gatherings and good food. Amy found herself going to Mass and to “CCD” now known as Faith Formation with her Italian girlfriends. She spent so much time with her Italian “family” that at times she felt she was actually Italian.

These  experiences growing up opened a desire to learn more about Jesus and the Church he established. After several failed attempts to join RCIA, Amy found herself at the Lutheran Church, where she was baptized in 1999. A year or so later, she found herself still yearning for more in her faith journey. Amy enrolled in RCIA in 2000 at St. Therese and formally entered into full communion with the Church at the Easter Vigil of 2001. Amy now claims to be a “Complete Jew.” She is an active member of Saint Therese de Lisieux Church in Wellington where she shares her passion for music in the Music ministry. She absolutely loves contemporary Christian music. Amy also assists with the RCIA program and is active within the Cursillo movement of the Diocese.

Amy has been married to Deacon Pete for over 25 years. They have two daughters, Ashley 24 and Brianna 21. Amy is extremely proud and blessed to have the family she has. She never thought she would be so blessed to have such a peaceful, loving family. Amy is part of a blended family. She has two siblings that share total DNA with her, one step-brother, and a baby brother from her mother’s second marriage. Amy has a very nurturing, protective manner with her siblings as well as her own children.

Amy currently is the Executive Assistant to the CFO of Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington. It is an extremely fast paced work environment with many challenges. Amy totally loves it. She has found a way to bring her Christian values into the work place. It seems like she has become the spiritual advisor for the office. She sees her work place as a ministry in the service of God’s people, and sees her life as very well rounded and balanced between her profession, her faith and her vast wonderful mentors and friends.

 "My soul magnifies the Lord ..."  Lk 1:46

 

In these words of the Magnificat, Mary proclaimed to Elizabeth her gratitude for the wonderful action of God in her life.  The entire scene of the Visitation is the inspiration for this ministry, which adopts the name of Mary's hymn of praise and the spirit of this biblical encounter as its own. Following the example of Mary and Elizabeth, this woman-to-woman ministry attempts to generate a lively faith in God and His action in our lives along with a love for Mary and the Church.

Please join us at a breakfast for Catholic women of the Palm Beach Diocesewhere we will share together in that same spirit of gratitude and praise of God.   After a meal, there will be a time of prayer for the needs of all present and an opportunity to hear one woman's experience of the transforming love of Christ in her own life. 

Please plan to come and bring a friend to rejoice in the presence of the Lord.

"Glorify the Lord with me.  Let us together extol His name."  Ps 34:4
