The Altar Society is an organization committed to the needs of the parish, to Christian fellowship, and to the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. Some activities include the annual Bazaar, funeral dinners, and wedding receptions. The Altar Society meets in the Parish Hall at 6:00pm on the 1st Monday of each month September through May (excluding November and January). All adult ladies of the parish are invited to attend.

This annual parish event is a great opportunity for parishioners to work together to put on one of the most popular Arts & Crafts Festivals in the area. Its success depends on the volunteer efforts of the entire parish. Proceeds from the Bazaar support the altar and other parish needs. Mark your calendars and plan to join us for our 43rd Annual Magdalen Bazaar on Saturday, November 5th, 2016. Our doors open to the public at 9:00 am and close at 4:00 pm. This is a great way to get to know a wonderful group of ladies, enjoy some delicious food, shop from over 100 booths of unique and special items that you only see once a year, and extend your stewardship for our wonderful parish. Once you attend and help with the Bazaar, it will be something you will always want to be a part of. The Bazaar is also a great opportunity for our students, 10 and older, to earn some stewardship credits. Please keep in mind, in an effort to keep everyone safe because of our large crowds, and the layout of the Bazaar, we do not allow strollers.
Wedding Receptions - Connie Rudd - (316) 683-4474
The Altar Society can be hired to not only assist with, but to make your wedding or anniversary reception, a very special event. We have items that may be borrowed or rented to transform our Parish Hall into just the right venue for your reception. We are always willing to work with you to achieve the right look for your special day. Volunteers are always welcome and needed to assist with cake cutting, and cleaning up of dishes, as well as to help wash linens after receptions.
