This Fall we are kicking off a new program at our ECHO Middle School Nights. We know that Middle School can be a really tough time with all of the changes. We also know that during this time of adolescence, skills and habits are formed that will last a life time. Our goal is to help equip the students with the tools necessary to thrive in all areas of their life (physical and spiritual). But, we can't do this alone.
Introducing EDGE. Edge is a national program designed to challenge the students with effective materials as well as engaging parents in meaningful conversations with their child either during or after the ride home. All parents who register their child for ECHO will also enter a parent ministry by which they will receive an email that will inform them about what we are talking about on a particular night as well as some discussion questions to help foster positive communication with their son/daughter.
We will meet on Tuesday Evenings from 6:30-8:00pm. The dates that we will meet during the year is as follows:
September 201317th & 24th
October 20131st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th

Church of the Magdalen 1:8 Confirmation Program"But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” -Acts 1:8
Dear Parish Families,
Welcome to the Church of the Magdalen Confirmation Preparation. We are excited to journey with your family and your teen towards the Sacrament of Confirmation. In this registration packet you will read about the Confirmation and Youth Ministry Program which the Church of the Magdalen provides your teen and your family. This is truly a special time of spiritual formation for your teen, one that we hope will strengthen your entire family.
We do ask both students and parents plan on attending a brief meeting after the 9:30am Mass on Sunday, September 29th. The new format of Confirmation Preparation and other important information will be presented at this meeting. To help you plan for the next six months we ask that the following dates be added to your family calendar.
Once a month the students will attend the 9:30am Sunday Mass as a group and will then meet until noon. The dates we will meet are; October 6th, November 3rd, December 1st, January 12th, February 23rd, March 9th, and April 6th.
Also, the confirmandi will be required to attend the Confirmation Retreat on February 22nd as well as participate in the parish high school youth group, MAX, at least once a month. MAX meets most Sunday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm. To see when they meet click Here.
Parents, as you continue ministering to your family, your parish and the community, we ask you to be especially faithful in these areas:
*Attend Sunday Liturgy and Holy Days of Obligation
*Support a parish ministry with the gift of your time
*Be true to the Biblical call to tithe
In addition to worshiping at the Church of the Magdalen, your family has the opportunity to give your time, talent and treasure to the many ministries this faith community has to offer. Opportunities to participate are not restricted to Youth Ministry or Confirmation, but include all parish ministries such as Adult Faith Formation, RCIA, Religious Education, to name a few. It is your example that will have the greatest impact on the faith of your child.
In His Service,
Fr. John Fogliasso Chris Roth
Associate Pastor Youth Minster
