Parish News July 6, 2017
Exciting news! St. Mary Magdalene has partnered with Lifetouch photography to create a beautiful, color photo church directory. Lifetouch works with churches to provide low cost, professional directories. They are able to do this by offering photo packages for purchase to participants. No purchase is necessary but St. Mary Magdalene will receive 5% cash back for every photo package purchased. Make sure you pick up a coupon from the Welcome Table! Directories will be provided with a suggested donation of $5 per copy to help offset costs to the church. So, if you have not had individual or family pictures made recently, please consider a package from Lifetouch.
There are two sessions remaining which will take place in the church library to maximize participation for our photo directory. The sessions will be:
Sunday July 09 – 11:00am-6:00pm
Sunday July 23 – 11:00am-6:00pm

Join us for a potluck brunch as we celebrate our patron saint, Mary Magdalene, on Sunday, July 23, following the 9am service. Please sign up on the bulletin board in the hall by the church office to provide an egg dish (breakfast casserole, etc), muffins, or fruit to share on this fun occasion. Due to limited oven space, bring your egg dishes wrapped and insulated to keep them warm for the potluck. Contact Kay Ingram with questions.
Haiti Scholarship Fundraiser Continues!
The Haiti Family Fair and BBQ was a great way to kick off our annual support of the Colorado Haiti Project and students at St. Paul’s School in Petit Trou, Haiti. So far, SMM parishioners have generously given 20 Konbit Scholarships. We’re halfway to our goal! And the Haitian Market not only raised additional funds, but also provided a chance to own a souvenir from Haitian artists.
Thanks to everyone who attended, brought food, or participated in various lawn games. They were great, and even Joey/Pumpkin/Butterscotch the cat joined in, chasing the bean bags and bocce balls!
Over the next few weeks, the Outreach Committee will continue to raise funds for Konbit scholarships. If you still want to donate but didn’t have a chance yet, please send in a check payable to SMM with “CHP” in the memo line. Each scholarship is $350, and donations of any amount are welcome! Questions? Please contact Mark Christie.
SMM Book Club
Our next book is The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck. Pat and Al Jefferson are hosting. 7pm, Friday, August 4. This tells the story of three war widows, and their children, who take refuge in the ruins of a Bavarian castle at the end of World War II. Contact Al or Pat Jefferson.
Bake Communion Bread!
We need some more bread bakers! We need bread for each week in July, August and September. The recipe is simple – making and baking takes about a half hour on Friday evening or early Saturday morning. Deliver the bread to the church before 10:00 am Saturday. It is nice too if you present it at the offertory on Sunday Morning, but not necessary. This is a wonderful expression of service and care for your church family! Find the recipe here! Contact Janet Poley to volunteer.
