Saint Mary Magdalen celebrated the Feast Day of Saint Michael the Archangel, the patron saint of First Responders. With so much unrest, Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic Church invited First Responders to join us at a socially distanced blessing.
Father Jack Siefert, Pastor of Saint Mary Magdalen, prayed a special blessing over the police officers asking Saint Michael to protect and defend them as they carry out their calling of protecting and serving.
After the blessing, refreshments were served and the 8th grade students presented the officers with letters of appreciation written by the Saint Mary Magdalen School Community and Family Faith Formation students. The letters assured the officers that the community is grateful for all that they do each day to protect us; their work is heroic. We also presented the officers with a star from retired flags as a reminder that our First Responders are appreciated and always remembered in prayer.
It was an honor to have these brave men and women with us at Saint Mary Magdalen.
