Director of Communications

05-24-2015Weekly ReflectionFr. Tim Christy

Dear Parish Family:

As some of you may know, throughout the past several months, the parish staff and I have prayerfully discerned the need for a Director of Communications at Saint Magdalen's.

This individual will be particularly dedicated to building a tactical delivery plan with a strong focus on communications planning, development and implementation of internal and external communications focused on furthering the church's vision and mission. To that end, I am pleased to introduce to you St. Magdalen's new Director of Communications, Mr. Fred Proulx. Over the next several months, Fred will be visiting the various ministries to introduce himself and become familiarized with our parish family.

Welcome Deacon Mauricio Tabera

05-17-2015Weekly ReflectionFr. Tim Christy

Dear Parish Family:

As you may know, following his ordination to the diaconate on Saturday, May 16th, Deacon Mauricio Tabera will be assigned to St. Magdalen's as his home parish while he continues his theology studies and prepares for his priestly ordination, God willing, in the spring of 2016. This week, the deacon-to-be gave an interview to our Director of Communications. I would like to share with you some of his background, how he discerned God's call to the priesthood and how he came to say yes to Christ's invitation to "come and follow me."

Sixth Sunday of Easter

05-10-2015Weekly ReflectionFr. Tim Christy

Dear Parish Family:

The Easter Season continues to bring forth new life. We just finished celebrating our parish First Communions, and this weekend we celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation. At the center of all of our sacraments is the risen Jesus Christ. He promised to remain with His Church until the end of time for the sake of personal encounter with each of us. This is why He with the Father sent the Holy Spirit into the world.

Confirmation is the completion of Baptism. It was at Baptism that we were reborn of water. We were washed clean of original sin. We were made children of the Father and heirs to the Kingdom of God. The Holy Trinity came to live with us intimately in the depths of our soul. Yet, we still need to be sealed with the Holy Spirit in Confirmation, which empowers us for our Christian mission in this world. Baptism incorporates us into the life of the Church; Confirmation sends us on mission for the sake of the gospel.
