‘With the heart and mind of Christ, we transform the world.’
‘With the heart and mind of Christ we transform the world” is a bold statement, and we believe it to be true. It is our north star and direct reference to Philippians 2:5, asking us to do more. “Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.” It is not just about honoring what he did and how he lived but rather a challenge for our path in this life.

We are ecumenical; we celebrate the rich heritage of catholic spirituality while honoring all spiritual traditions. We strive for justice and peace, and respond to the call of discipleship by loving deeply and rooting our lives in prayer and service.

Our response denouncing racism and the complicity in racist biases due to silence
Mary of Magdala, an Ecumenical Catholic Community understands that white silence in times when Black individuals are victims of hate crimes or police violence only serves to reinforce racial biases and racist assumptions. Mary of Magdala, ECC will not be complicit in that silence. We, as a parish community, stand in solidarity with the Black community and people of color. We condemn racism in any form in our city, country, and beyond. We will commit our church to serve and mend the ways in which we have unintentionally harmed these communities in the past.
“With the heart and mind of Christ,
we transform the world.”
