“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive good or evil, according to what he has done in the body.” - 2 CORINTHIANS 5:10
We are all responsible for the gifts God has given us our time, our talent and our treasure. Each of us is accountable
not only for our own life but how we affected the lives of others as well. God, one day, will ask each of
us to be accountable for what we did with the gifts He gave us.
Do you know how will you respond?
Treasures From our Tradition
The reign of God comes about because
people commit to reversing their
lives completely, to embracing new vision,
new values. Many popular television
shows exploit an unattractive side
of human nature by pitting contestants
against one another, even to the point
of performing dangerous stunts or devious
schemes, to gain money or favor.
At the liturgy, we counter that impulse
by committing ourselves to live
generously. In response to Christ’s total
gift, we offer bread and wine as the emblems
of our lives, our hopes, our joys
and sorrows. The bread and wine carried
to the altar contain our lives, and by offering
our lives to God, we prepare to
receive the gift of God’s own life. We
are to become what we receive: the body
On Sundays, this self-giving is
often accompanied by a collection and
procession of gifts for the poor and
money for the upkeep of the parish.
There are certainly other methods of
collecting money, some perhaps more
efficient. Yet the acts of giving from
our abundance and attending to the
needs of the poor open us up to
participation in the changes the Reign
of God requires.
We need volunteers who wish to share their knowledge with
children or young adults as teachers on Monday or Tuesday
in the afternoon.
As a volunteer we will give you enough
information so you feel comfortable doing your work.
For more information, call Rectory Office.
Becoming a godparent/sponsor in the Catholic Church
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:
- A baptized Catholic who has received the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion and is practicing the Catholic faith.
- Mature enough to undertake the responsibility.
- 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.
- 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.
