Who We Are

Mary Magdalene Apostle Catholic Community (MMACC) is a community of progressive Catholics who are committed to the reform and renewal of the church. We strive to live the values of compassion, peace, and social justice as taught by Jesus. We believe in a church that celebrates the full equality of all persons - practicing radical inclusivity in our ministry, worship, and language. We support women's ordination, optional celibacy for all priests, and a discipleship of equals where all are truly welcome.

We welcome you to a church that recognizes and fosters the dignity and ministry of all in the church.
We invite your individual spirituality and look forward to sharing our spirituality with you.
We invite you as you are, with your unique gifts and talents.
We invite you to celebrate our inclusive liturgies.
We invite you into a discipleship of equals.
We welcome you as a gift.

Give us an hour.
MMACC may be what you’re looking for.
