Family Faith Formation for Grades K - 5

We would like to welcome you to St. Mary Magdalene’s Family Faith Formation Program. 

Our program strives to evangelize and catechize both children and parents so all who participate in the program encounter the love of Jesus Christ and carry out His mission.
