Introduction to the Pastoral Plan

I'd like to thank the Parish Council members for their work over this last year.  They have demonstrated a real commitment to the life of our parish.  We've taken the "Listening Session Report" and the "Questionnaire Results," published back in January, and used them to good purpose.  In the last six months we've met many times to produce a Pastoral Plan which will guide our efforts forward.

In order to promulgate the Plan, we will share brief reflections (3 minutes) at the weekend masses.  Over several weeks, parishioners will in effect receive an orientation without us having to hold large meetings.  Giving the Plan to everyone in bite-sized portions will also allow us to digest the plan more fully and fruitfully.  It may also enhance our sense of expectancy and hope.

The text of the Plan IS NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE.  Printed copies of the Plan (in the form of a Binder) will be available at the Office upon request.

It is my earnest hope that the listening and reporting we've done might truly bear fruit in a renewal of spirit.  God is good and He will help us fulfill our Mission.  By the way, our newly discerned Mission Statement follows below.

In the Love of Christ,
Fr. Stephen Kaminski

St. Mary Magdalene Parish Mission Statement

To be a Eucharistic Church:
...Where Seekers become rooted in Belief,
...Where Believers are cultivated in Discipleship,
...Where Disciples grow in Apostolic Commitment! 

Families in Faith (PSR)
Families in Faith is a multigenerational family Parish School of Religion program that is for everyone!  All are welcome as sisters and brothers in Christ. 
The church has a a plan for our salvation!  We are called to be lifelong learners.  Therefore regular attendance at Sunday Mass is the primary way we experience the mysteries of our faith.  In addition to Sunday Eucharist, Religious Education and Faith or Spiritual formation helps us to dive more deeply into the meaning and practice of our faith.
On Sunday mornings Adults and Youth in High School are welcome to participate in CAFE (Catholic Adult Faith Education). This group reflects on the Scriptures used for mass that day, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. 
From September to April, one Sunday a month is dedicated to Inter-generational Formation. All are welcome to join us for a hot breakfast in the gym, followed by a lesson and activity based on the topic for the year. Two weeks of the month, children from grades K through 8 attend grade level, classroom sessions. All sessions typically last 90 minutes. (We love it when parents stay on site while the children are in their classes, so we encourage you to stay for Cafe!)

Registration is necessary for all children. Click here to register and pay online. Families in Faith Color Logo no bkgrnd

For more information about our PSR program, please contact our Pastoral Minister and Director of Religious Education, Laurie Jurecki


As most of you know, the air conditioning system in the church failed a few weeks ago. While functionality has been temporarily restored, we are in need of a new chiller, at a cost of $53,150.00. Since this was not in our budget, in order to preserve our modest savings, we are seeking your help.

Would you consider an offering to offset this expense?

If so, you can DONATE HERE, come to the office or return the envelope that was mailed to all parishioners.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Sacraments of Initiation Preparation
Evangelization is God's work accomplished through each one of us.  Welcoming new people to the Catholic faith through the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist is a vital part of our role as Christians.   The gift of our faith is one that must be shared with others.   Faith is contagious and can be caught by the way we live our lives.  When you hear of someone who is interested in becoming Catholic, welcome them and invite them to become a part of our parish...
Adults who are interested in becoming Catholic, that is celebrating Baptism, Confirmation and First Eucharist may contact Deacon Carl Toomey .
Adults who are interested in celebrating the Sacraments of Confirmation or First Eucharist may contact Deacon Carl Toomey for more information. 
Children between the ages of 7 and 17 who are interested in being welcomed into the Roman Catholic faith through Baptism or who would like to complete the Sacraments of Initiation through Confirmation and/or Eucharist may contact Mary Lou Beers.
Parents who are interested in having their child, under the age of 7, Baptized may contact Deacon Carl Toomey.
Our sacramental life is our lifeline to God.  We are refreshed in the waters as we enter church and remember our own Baptism.  The oils of confirmation remain as a seal of God's love for us.  Eucharist, the Bread of Life nourishes us week after week. We are so blessed and so need to pass this great gift on to others.  Evangelization is our way of spreading the Good News of Jesus.

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.
