Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic Church offers many opportunities for Faith Formation. Faith is our life long journey to a relationship with Christ and equips people to live as disciples of Jesus. We offer educational and enrichment programs for both children and adults including Catholics and those discerning the faith.
Every Mass ends with the encouragement “Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.” How can we take the richness of the liturgy into our everyday lives, our families, our neighborhoods, our workplaces? Click the “Drawing Deeply” heading to open the St. Mary Magdalen Faith Portal.
Every one of us was endowed by God with gifts and talents to bring His Kingdom into this world. Click here to discover your gifts, and to learn how to share those with our parish, community, and world.
In the fall and during Lent, Saint Mary Magdalen offers a series of adult education classes. If you are interested in being part of a class, contact Nancy Shroff at Nancy.Shroff@stmmschool.com.
Children’s Liturgy is held during the 9:30am Mass for children 3 years old and older. This provides an opportunity for children to understand the same scriptures and readings their parents are listening to during Mass. Activities and discussions are used to explain the themes of the scriptural readings. From the church, the children are led downstairs after the opening prayer and return for the preparation of the Gifts. For details please contact Shelly Moelm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
JIF prepares adults (Catechumens) who wish to become members of the Catholic Church. The program starts in September and lasts until Easter when the Catechumens become Catholic. Priests, religious, and lay members of our parish give presentations on various aspects of the Catholic faith. The group meets every week during the program. To learn how you or someone you know can become Catholic, please contact Ken & Flora Wilsker at 314-649-5648.
