Lighting Hearts on Fire Diocesan Consecration

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.


Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

We need committed adorers, people willing to sign-up for a particular hour of Eucharistic Adoration each week.


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.

Christmas Giving Tree

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.


Construction has Begun on Our New Adoration Chapel

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.


It’s Not Too Late… To Fill Out a Card with Your Gifts!
