Sisters of the Humility of Mary Receive Magnificat Award. In recognition of their 150th anniversary in the United States, the Sisters of the Humility of Mary were guests of honor at the recent 25th Annual Magnificat Endowment Gala, where they were also presented with the Magnificat Award for their commitment to Magnificat High School, to Catholic education and to the young women called to live Mary’s Magnificat in the world. A total of 40 sisters attended the special event, which carried a French theme in honor of their origins in France.
