In the past few days Hurricane Irma devastated significant parts of the Caribbean and the southeastern United States. While emergency outreach was immediate, we know that the road to recovery and the rebuilding of communities will be long and additional support will be needed.

United States Catholic Conference of Bishops is asking us to take an emergency collection for those impacted by Hurricane Irma. These funds will be used in the affected areas to support humanitarian aid, assistance with long-term efforts to restore communities after widespread destruction, and for the pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church in US and the Caribbean.

We are aware that this call comes on the heels of the emergency collection for Hurricane Harvey. That storm, which hit Texas and Louisiana and held on for days before moving inland, caused catastrophic damage and compelled us to respond. Likewise, Hurricane Irma has been devastating, and our brothers and sisters in the Caribbean, especially the Diocese of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, and the southern US need our help.

The Church is a channel for grace and solidarity in the wake of natural disasters as it offers solace and support in their aftermath. However, as is so often the case, the Church itself in these regions is both a long-standing provider of aid and now is in need of tremendous assistance itself. So many of the Church’s structures have been damaged and their resources depleted which makes it even more challenging to provide assistance and pastoral outreach to those in need.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Sunday October 8, 2017 from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM at Parish Hall

Please bring your donations to the Rectory Office during regular schedule hours.

Being chosen as a godparent for baptism is an honor, for the godparent traditionally becomes a spiritual companion to the one being baptized in a journey of faith.

Please decide if your faith life makes you ready to publicly pledge that you have been leading a life in harmony with the Catholic tradition. Godparents should be both role models and resource persons, individuals who are at ease with the practice of their faith and would normally be considered as “active Catholics.” They should be people who are comfortable with answering questions about their personal relationship with God as experienced in the Catholic Communion, even if they are unsure of all the technicalities.

Godparents should be people who are interested in and will continue to spiritually support the “godchild” in the years ahead.

Catholic Church Requirements - To be a godparent, a person must be:

  1. A baptized Catholic who has received the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion and is practicing the Catholic faith.
  2. Mature enough to undertake the responsibility.
  3. A member of the Catholic Church canonically free to carry out this responsibility. If a person is married, the marriage must have been a Catholic marriage, not just a civil marriage. Catholics currently living in a marriage not considered valid by the Catholic Church or cohabitating are excluded from being a Godparent.
  4. Someone other than the father or mother, spouse or fiancé of the one who is to be baptized.
* In order to be a Godparent/Sponsor St. Mary Magdalen Church requires that the person be registered member of our parish at least 6 months previous to the date of the Baptism.

How do we care?
