MAX Youth


Magdalen Ambassadors of Christ

An Ambassador is an authorized messenger or representative of a state or King. Here at Church of the Magdalen MAX Youth Ministry, our message is that of the unconditional love of God and we represent the Son of God, Christ who we strive to imitate in our words, actions, and lives.  Those a part of this ministry aren't perfect, but we trust in the one who is. We love Mary and ask for her intercession in overcoming the challenges in life that lead us away from God. We're not a club, click, or gang. We are simply sinners who welcome others and would like to get to know you when you get a chance to stop by. Our Youth Room is located in between the school cafeteria and the library. We meet weekly on Sunday nights with a new time of 7:00-8:30pm. Check back with this page often for upcoming events, concerts, retreats, and sports activities.  Church Youth Ministry isn't for wimps, just those who aren't ashamed to admit that we can't live this life on our own.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Prayer & Action Mission Trip

July 6th-11th, 2014
Fort Scott, Kansas

A mission experience in your own backyard!

Prayer and Action is a summer Catholic youth ministry program for high school students where young people pray together and work together to serve those who are in need.

As Catholics, we are called to serve with love and humility. Prayer and Action is an opportunity for us to live out the Gospel message in a tangible way.  Students will join others from around the diocese for a week long mission to serve the poor and homeless of Kansas. The schedule is simple, in the mornings we will nourish our souls with Mass and our bodies with breakfast, during the day we will serve on teams in the community by painting, doing yard work and other small jobs. Finally we will recharge with evening sessions designed to inspire. Meals are served throughout the day as well.

The mission is simple Pray, Serve, and have Faith that we do all this for the glory of God. Register today by submitting the forms in the Documents Tab to the Parish office. The cost is $75 which includes room and board. Checks should be made out to the Magdalen.  A list of items to bring will be sent at a later date.
