Welcome to St. Magdalen's
The Roman Catholic Church of St. Magdalen de Pazzi exists to echo Jesus' call to all: "Come and Follow Me."
Our patroness, Saint Magdalen de Pazzi poetically prayed, “Come Holy Spirit! Consume in us whatever prevents us from being consumed in you.” Although this may seem like a pious expression that only a distant, unfamiliar saint could make, truly, it expresses the deepest desire of each one of us.
As we race about, pressured on every side to meet expectations and achieve all the things in life that we hope will make us happy, what each of us truly wants, deep down, is that all of our nagging questions, all of our doubts, all of our hurts, and all of our sins would be removed so that we could rest in God’s truth, in his love, in his justice, and in his mercy- in other words, to be totally consumed in God. Our parish exists to echo Jesus’ call to each one of us to follow him, for he is the way, the truth, and the life. He is the answer to our deepest human desires; he is the gate which leads to the loving arms of God our father.
Events & Announcements
Dec 12, 2019
Lighting Hearts on Fire is a campaign of spiritual renewal within the Diocese of Metuchen that seeks to bring about a renewed zeal for evangelization among the faithful. All youth, families, and people of faith are invited to participate in the walking pilgrimage in beautiful Hunterdon County.
Candles in the Narthex
Please keep in mind that when lighting a candle in the Narthex there is a suggested donation of $5.00. This allows us to purchase the candles and have them available for the parishioners to light them.
Each year so many of you generously provide gift cards from our Giving Tree in the Narthex for people St Magdalen’s serve through the Hope House. These gift cards allow families to provide gifts of necessity and joy at Christmas.
We ask that all gift cards are returned by Sun, Dec 20 So that we may make baskets for the families and distribute them ahead of Christmas.
We will be moving our Adoration Chapel to a new location in the space formally known as the St. John Paul II Room off the Narthex.
