Holy Communion to Sick and Homebound
The homebound and retirement home Catholics in our area are still very much apart of our community through prayer and in faith. We have many volunteers that take Holy Communion on Sundays to the homebound and retirement residents. If you or a family member would like to receive Communion at home, please call the Parish Office at (302) 652-6800.
Preparation for baptism, scheduling of baptism, and family follow ups also fall under Pastoral Ministry at SMM. Our baptisms are on the first and the third Sundays of each month after the 11:00 a.m. Mass. If looking to schedule a baptism please call the Parish Office at (302) 652-6800.
We have a wide variety of outreach opportunities through our parish please let us know if you would like to get involved with serving the poor and vulnerable in our surrounding community. Contact the Parish Office at (302) 652-6800 for more information.
St. Mary Magdalen has a vibrant Senior Center with bingo and other activities. Bingo is on Thursdays from 12:50 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. Feel free to stop by, all are welcome.
If ever a parishioner is looking for emotional or spiritual support we try to help or find resources to help. Contact the Parish Office at (302) 652-6800.
St. Vincent dePaul Society
SMM’s St. Vincent de Paul Society will help those in need. If you are in need of assistance please call (302) 652-6800 ext. 170 to start the interview process. If you would like to contribute, donations can be made directly to the St. Vincent de Paul Society via our parish office or the Poor Boxes at the Church exits. Reminder, all money contributed through the children’s envelopes also goes straight to St. Vincent de Paul society.
Jesus commands us to care for the sick, cloth the naked, feed the hungry, give shelter to the homeless, visit the prisoner, tend to the needs of the widow and orphan. The St. Vincent dePaul Society is a group of dedication parishioners who tend to all these needs in the name of our parish community, supported through the generosity of parishioners via the poor boxes & the money collected from the children’s envelopes. They meet every other Tuesday night in the church hall (see bulletin for details.)
