St. Mary Magdalene Women’s Group is dedicated to providing a forum for fellowship, study and service for the women of Holy Apostles’ Church. The Equal-to-the-Apostles St. Mary Magdalene was the first to see Christ after His resurrection, and she ran to tell the apostles the news. Thus, she was the Apostle to the apostles. Later she travelled widely, even appearing before the Roman emperor, witnessing to the love and power of Christ. Since she also occupies a place of honor on the iconostasis in our chapel, we pray for her patronage and look to her as our model of zeal and love of the Savior.
The women’s group meets about once every two months, or more often for projects. We have organized video teachings, book studies, retreats, knitting/craft circles, baby showers, and ladies’ night out at local restaurants. We also maintain St. Martin’s Closet, which collects donations of non-perishable food, baby items and gently used clothing for those in need in the community.
