Women In Business: Maria Tregre
Sep 22, 2017 04:34PM ● Published by Caitlin Marshall
Maria Tregre is a native of Puerto Rico who came to Lafayette in 1979 to attend USL. Determined to improve her English speaking skills, she became involved in numerous activities to help herself in that endeavor, and in 1981, she began a 20-year career at Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic Church. Known for her world travels, she was asked by her pastor in 1995 to organize a pilgrimage to Portugal, Spain, and France. The on-going spiritual effects and growth from that pilgrimage did not go unnoticed. Maria knew she was being called to provide this ministry to others so, after much prayer and reflection, in "2001" she founded Magnificat Travel and made group pilgrimages for churches, prayer groups, ordinations, and schools the model for her business. To date, Maria and her staff have organized more than 300 spiritual journeys to 30 foreign countries.
