St. Mary Magdalene Parish Mission Statement

As a Roman Catholic Community, St. Mary Magdalene is a community of Christians
who profess and share a common, loving faith in Jesus Christ
and are nourished through prayer and activity, especially the Eucharist,
and are inspired by the Spirit who calls each of us to use our gifts
in the midst of our neighborhoods and throughout the world.

We continue with the beautiful Easter Proclamation before all are invited to listen to the Word proclaimed and preached. Following the Liturgy of the Word, we celebrate the Baptism and Confirmation of those joining the Christian Community.Together we join with them in the Liturgy of the Eucharist as they celebrate with the community for the first time.

Fr. SK resized  An Administrator for St. Mary Magdalene
  Fr. Stephen Kaminski

Our pope, Francis, in an address to a Latin American Conference of Bishops said the following:

"Being (Bishops) also means to....incline ourselves toward those the Lord has entrusted to our care.   Among these, a  special place is reserved for our priests: especially for them, our hearts, our hands, and our doors remain open at all times. They are the first faithful we bishops have, our priests. Let us love them! Let us love them from the heart! They are our sons and our brothers."

While Fr. Ted has been away, Bishop Lennon and his staff have shown him the love and care of which Francis spoke. Local priests, equally concerned for both a brother priest and parish community in need, stepped in to ensure that the sacraments would be offered without interruption.

Bishop Lennon has now granted Fr. Ted Lucas permission to begin a Personal Leave of Absence - Sick Leave. This leave is effective 8 March 2014. An authorized Leave of Absence is defined as time off from official assignment with permission from the Bishop.  Fr. Ted has been granted this leave to attend to his personal health and well-being.  In light of Bishop Lennon's responsibility to provide for the pastoral care of the people of St. Mary Magdalene, he has appointed Fr. Stephen Kaminski to serve as Parochial Administrator.  

Fr. Stephen has graciously accepted this assignment in addition to his duties as Chaplain of Lake Health, and will maintain his residence at Our Lady of Mount Carmel. He can be reached at 440-585-0700 ext. 602.

Please keep both Fr. Ted and Fr. Stephen in your prayers.

Room 103 - No Registration Required!

To be a Catholic Means:

  • To live a life centered on Jesus Christ and His saving action.
  • To take part in and live out the Sacraments given to us by Christ, especially the Eucharist. The Sacraments provide us with strength. 
  • To be enriched by the word of God.
  • To be provided with models and heroes.
  • To take part in and practice a rich tradition of personal and communal prayer.   
  • To be part of a rich tradition of caring for others, building a better life, and providing us with a sense of belonging.
  • To have meaning and freedom in our lives.
You are invited to think and pray about these things as Catholics.  You probably can think of other great things that you love about your faith.  Don’t be afraid to share your list with others who are not Catholic or have not been to church for a while.  If you would like to discuss this list in greater detail or if you know someone who would like to inquire further about the Catholic Faith please contact: Deacon Carl Toomey by phone at: 440.854.6016 or by email.

With all of us working together, we can make a difference in our parish, our city and our world.

Help keep ministry alive and well at St. Mary Magdalene.
