Community outreach has been a core ethos and practice at St. Mary Magdalene with a long-standing tradition of proactive community outreach, including active service with local shelters, programs, agencies, and advocacy groups that serve the poor and the homeless. Our Outreach Committee meets monthly to determine how best to distribute the funds entrusted to it. We have supported a variety of local, national, and international nonprofit programs and organizations.

SMM parishioners also support a perpetual food drive and periodic clothing/bedding drives, and many serve in their personal lives as well, beyond the walls of the church. There are many ways to give back to our community through your time, talent, and treasure. Find a complete list here >


Community Garden

We have a community garden on our property where we grow vegetables to donate to local food pantries. Each year we donate hundreds of pounds of organic vegetables to needy families.


Volunteering

SMM parishioners give a significant amount of their time and talent to outreach. Some of these projects include Habitat for Humanity, Community Food Share, and CROP Hunger Walk.


Community Food Share 
Looking for an easy way to support Outreach? Please remember the SMM Food Pantry basket in your weekly grocery shopping! Donations such as cereal, peanut butter, soup, canned tuna and chicken, rice, and baby food/formula are especially needed. Place sealed, non-perishable items only in the basket at the back of church in the entry way. Thank you!
