St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church is called to foster a welcoming community, to form disciples for Jesus Christ and to joyfully evangelize.
Unifying Vision: Walking together with Christ, igniting the Spirit within, living God’s Call.
Dynamic Catholic is offering their next Advent Program, Best Advent Ever: Rediscover Christmas! Last year’s program focused on how to experience God’s mercy and share it with others. This year, the program will help you slow down and focus on what matters most during the busy holiday season. Experience Christmas like you never have before!
