Parish Re-Opening Plan09-11-2020
The Parish of St. Magdalen de Pazzi made some changes to insure everyone’s health & safety as we navigate through this pandemic. We have recently updated our bathrooms to become less hands on and more sanitary. The Church is being cleaned and sanitized and hand sanitizing stations have been placed throughout the Church and Narthex. We have removed all missals, books and pamphlets. The State of NJ has now raised our seating capacity to 150 and we are ready to accommodate this new mandate. We have strategically roped off our pews to provide social distancing and we are enforcing that everyone must wear face masks properly to help stop the spread of this virus. If you been away, we welcome you back.READ MORE
While we all deal with the Coronavirus please remember that the church needs to continue to attend to its financial responsibilities. We would be grateful if you could drop off your weekly offertory envelops or sign up for electronic or text giving. To sign up for electronic or text giving, please click the button below.
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.
