2014 Magdalene Centre Mass - tonight!

The Magdalene Centre Mass celebrates and acknowledges the work of the Magdalene Centre, an important outreach and avenue of assistance to  disadvantaged, isolated and marginalised people in Adelaide

All the partner churches will celebrate together - St John’s, St Mary Magdalene’s, St Peter’s Cathedral -  along with AnglicareSA and the renowned Anglicare Choir. 

The Magdalene Centre Mass is celebrated on the feast day of St Laurence - a martyr from the early days of Christianity. At that time, the Prefect of Rome thought the Church had a great fortune hidden away and ordered Lawrence to bring the Church's treasure to him. Laurence went through the city and gathered together all the poor and sick people supported by the Church. Then he showed them to the Prefect, and said: "This is the Church's treasure." 

When: Monday 11 August 2014 at 6pm
Where: St Mary Magdalene’s Anglican Church, Moore St, Adelaide
Refreshments: Naturally! Refreshments will be served in the hall after Mass
