“All of the love that God has in Himself, all of the beauty that God has in Himself, all of the truth that God has in Himself, He gives to the family. And a family is truly a family when it is able to open its arms and receive all of this love.” (Pope Francis, 2015, Cuba)

We are called to be servants in our community, in our Church, and in our homes. At St. Mary Magdalene, our Family Life ministries reflect God's love, beauty, and truth, and promote happy and healthy families. 

Family Life Programs

StMM’s marriage enrichment fellowship group, is a relevant, constructive and uplifting  place for couples to build stronger, faith-centered marriages and families.  An interesting mix of speakers, books and other resources offer an energized, dynamic atmosphere for marital growth and renewal.  Get to know likeminded couples of all ages and marriage stages at the group’s monthly meetings, Sunday afternoons during the fall and spring.  Childcare provided.

Adult and teen volunteers needed every Chrysalis session to staff our childcare team.  Volunteering is a great way to support strong marriages in our parish and earn service hours for Confirmation, graduation or school enrollment .

Newcomers Orientation Committee is dedicated to welcoming newcomers into our parish family and introducing them to opportunities for involvement and ministry.  Volunteers make the first formal contact with newly registered parishioners. When new parishioners register with the parish office, a welcome information packet is mailed and the parish office provides the committee volunteers with the new parishioner’s phone number. The volunteer then follows up on the mailing with a welcoming phone call for which a basic script is provided.  The time commitment will vary but will involve about 4 phone calls per month.
