We at St. Mary Magdalen Parish, in union with the Roman Catholic Church throughout the world, celebrate and proclaim the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are committed to a rich sacramental life that nourishes our faith, builds our community, and sends us out to respond to Christ’s call to holiness. St. Mary Magdalen has deep roots in the history of Camarillo and our membership reflects the rich diversity of our community.

Unfortunately our Halloween Movie night is CANCELLED due to the latest COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese.
Safety is our greatest concern and though this decision comes with some sadness, we will continue to plan events for the future.
“INTO THE BREACH": The Knights of Columbus will soon begin a men’s group discussion based on a series titled “Into the Breach” which is inspired by the Apostolic Exhortation for Catholic men written by Bishop Olmsted of Phoenix in 2015. It is a series of videos, each focused on urging me to embrace wholeheartedly different masculine virtues in a world in crisis. Groups will be comprised of no more than 10 men and will begin meeting once we have enough men to form our initial groups. This program is open to all Catholic men. You don’t have to be a Knight of Columbus to join us. For more information, please visit the link below.
If you’re interested, please contact David Sasek, Deputy Grand Knight, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
As pilgrims on a faith journey,
we seek to grow in these particular areas:
To more fully answer our baptismal call to live and share the life
and the love and the message of Jesus Christ.
To be nourished by the Word and the Eucharist in such a way that our hearts are engaged, our minds are receptive, and our energies are applied to the great adventure of being disciples of Jesus.
To more generously give of our time, our talents, and our treasure
to meet the needs of our parish and the broader community.
