Rejoice in the Lord always.
I shall say it again: rejoice! Philippians 4:4
Welcome home!
We are so blessed to call St. Mary Magdalene home. The generosity of this community, the vibrant worship, and faith formation opportunities for all are true blessings. As we continue emerging from the pandemic, plans are coming together to resume many of the gatherings we have enjoyed in the past. Here are just a few:
Faith Formation opportunities...
Vacation Bible School
Families in Faith PSR

Join Music Ministry!
Have you ever considered participating in music ministry? Think it might be fun to sing with the choir, but not sure where to start? We need you!

As the pandemic loosens its grip on society, we find ourselves faced with the opportunity to rebuild and renew our ministry. Do you feel the Spirit nudging you? Come to the church on July 22 at 7pm for information, inspiration, and prayer. Even if you’re not sure you want to commit, at least join us for an hour to see if music ministry might be a good fit for you.

What better way to celebrate the feast of St. Mary Magdalene, than to join members of your parish family who all seek to be better disciples?

Questions? Contact Mary Hrich.
Interested in Liturgical Ministry?
Or know someone who might be receptive to an invitation to serve in liturgical ministry? We are in need of more ministers. Questions? Contact Fr. Breck.

Already serve as a liturgical minister? Even if you haven't been active recently, please plan to attend an evening of recollection for all St. Mary Magdalene Liturgical Ministers on Monday, August 30, beginning at 6pm. More details will be forthcoming, but mark your calendar!
Worship opportunities...
We are a people of prayer!
Our staff gathered this week to spend time in prayer and planning. The calendar over the next several months now includes several additional worship opportunities, from evenings of Exposition of the Holy Eucharist with Confessions, to holy hours and novenas, to a Lenten Warm-Up time of recollection. How blessed we are to be able to gather in person once again for prayer!

Has it been a while since you've been to church? Join us for Mass:
Weekdays: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9:00am
Weekends: Saturday @ 4:30pm and Sunday @ 8am & 11am
Abundant Gratitude

You may have noticed our bulletin recently published updates on the success of our Homecoming Festival, and the commitments made to the Heart of a Shepherd initiative. We are so blessed by the amazing generosity of our community. Your support enables us to continue the mission and ministry of St. Mary Magdalene.
THANK YOU.

Indeed, we rejoice!
