The Commission for Business Administration & Finance

Parish business administration exists to support the total life of St. Magdalen’s, all of its ministries and activities. It is especially related to social justice in that it operates from the respect for the human person and functions to ensure the rights which flow from human dignity. The Commission for Business Administration and Finance works to ensure responsible stewardship of our parish’s resources in such a way as to be a statement of the parish’s mission to make Christ present to all.

Please prayerfully consider sharing your gifts and talents in one of the ministries listed below. To learn more including what training is provided for each ministry, contact the Business Administrator, Regina Edersheim, at (908) 782-2922, ext. 1728.


This ministry is dedicated to the parish’s garden areas.  They plant, weed, water and provide general care for the flowerbeds and containers around the campus.  Work is continual from Spring through Fall and parishioners need not have experience or even a “green thumb” to become involved.  For more information, please call Jim Barile at (908) 788-0948 or JoAnn Fisher at (908) 328-9139.
