Spiritual Center


We are rooted in the certainty that all people are created equal, and remain so, in God's eyes and in ours. People flourish when treated with dignity and love–it's our common birthright! Thus we strive to serve persons of all races, colors and creeds.

Our foundation is Matthew 25:35, in the passages called, the "Corporal Works of Mercy".

Counseling is available from our staff on temporal and spiritual matters.

Catholic Mass is said daily in various locations around our campus and weekly catechism instruction is offered; see the schedule below.

Daniel Cardinal DiNardo blessed the Magnificat Community at the Moran Center Dedication.

Religious in Residence

Our campus is blessed with the working presence of Catholic nuns, priests and deacons, many from the USA and others from Guatemala, India and the Philippines. The cultural diversity enriches our population and emphasizes that our Catholic Church is part of a universal family.
