Religious Education encompasses many aspects of our faith formation. Faith formation is a life-long process for all members of our parish family—children and adults. There is no time in one's life when formation in our faith ends. In other words—it is a life long journey for each one of us! Faith in Christ is what makes us one family—one Church. 

At St. Mary Magdalen, we offer a variety of enrichment opportunities from speaker events to educational programs. For more information, please look below at our current opportunities or contact our parish office.


Our PREP Program's main goal is to

help your child to reach Jesus: to

know that he/she is especially

loved and valued by Christ.

Our catechetical programs begin

in Grade 1 and extends to Grade 7. Students who complete

this program of studies are thus prepared to complete initiation

into the Catholic faith through the sacrament of Confirmation.

Many adults entering the Catholic Church, or those just thinking about it, follow a process known as the RCIA (the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)


Sessions focus both on teachings and practices of the Catholic faith,

as well as, the value and application of faith in our daily lives.


This journey will take you through the various phases of discerning your call to become a Catholic and the living of that faith.
