Messages From Fr. Anthony Smith


To the community of St Mary Magdalen Parish:

I am Fr. Anthony J. Smith, Pastor of St John the Evangelist Church. First let me express my sincere condolences for the unexpected passing of your pastor Fr Hickey. This past weekend we prayed for Fr Hickey and you, the parishioners, at St John the Evangelist Church. 

Archbishop Blair has asked that I assume the responsibility of temporary administrator of St Mary Magdalen.  This will give me the ability to assure that the financial and administrative activity at St Mary Magdalen continue without interruption.  I am also responsible for the pastoral needs of the parishioners and will do my best to assure the sacraments continue to be available.

We find ourselves in unprecedented times with advent of COVID-19. As a result all the churches in the Archdiocese have canceled all masses, both weekday and weekend Masses, until April 4, 2020.  We will keep St John Church open for individual prayer from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. We invite you to come during those hours for prayer during this challenging time.  We will keep you posted with any directives that come from the archdiocese regarding the pandemic.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the coming weeks as we mourn the loss of Fr Hickey and endure the challenge of the pandemic in which we find ourselves.  Please know I will do my best to be available for you and to serve the community of St Mary Magdalen.

Sincerely in Christ

Rev. Anthony J. Smith
