Feast of the Presentation of the Lord

01-29-2023Weekly ReflectionFr. Chris Axline

Later this week (Thursday February 2nd) the Church celebrates the Presentation of the Lord, a feast with deep scriptural and ritual roots. Ritually, this feast, prior to the Second Vatican Council, marked the end of the Christmas Season and was known as the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary.


How Eucharistic Adoration has Changed Lives

01-22-2023Weekly ReflectionWalt Stenborg

Eucharistic Adoration was not something that I had been exposed to, even growing up Catholic, regularly attending Mass on Sundays and having attended Catholic Grade School.

Having been a parishioner here at St. Mary Magdalene for nearly 19 years, I have been blessed to spend time with the Lord routinely over the last 5 or so years in the Adoration Chapel. I have chosen the early morning hours of 1am on Sunday mornings, mostly because of my hectic last minute work travel schedule.
