Feast of St. Mary Magdalene

July 22, 2016

Tolentino_Basilica_di_San_Nicola_Cappellone_14Happy Feast of St. Mary Magdalene! Earlier this year, Pope Francis upgraded the Memorial of the “Apostle to the Apostles” to a Feast day of the Universal Church. Here in Coweta County, we have a parish dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene, making the feast a solemnity – the highest ranking feast day – for the parish. Please consider making a visit to St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church today, an opportunity for a Plenary Indulgence. For the indulgence, pray devoutly an Our Father and profess a Creed (Apostles or Nicene, for example) along with the usual conditions:

  1. Sacramental Confession
  2. Eucharistic Communion
  3. Prayer for the intention of the Pope (an Our Father and a Hail Mary suffices)
  4. Exclusion of all attachment to sin

These conditions can be performed within several days before or after the prescribed work. St. Mary Magdalene will celebrate Holy Mass this evening at 7pm with an ice-cream social to follow. What a wonderful way to celebrate the saint! St. Mary Magdalene, pray for us!
