Mary Magdalene Church is an inclusive church in the

Jesus taught, to honor and respect each individual
and to share the joy of God's unconditional love
in our community and beyond.

"Give even if you only have a little" ~ Buddha

"Lent is about being honest with ourselves, changing what needs to change in our lives, making our world a better place and growing into the Light." ~ Sr. Joan Chittister, OSB
