Welcome to the Church of The Magdalene
No matter your status in the Catholic Church;
No matter your family or marital situation,
No matter your past or present,
No matter your age, race, color or orientation,
You are invited, welcomed, accepted, loved and respected at the Church of the Magdalene.
The Church of the Magdalene is a small country church, located in the beautiful hamlet of Pocantico Hills
in Westchester County. Roads leading to the hamlet pass by rolling fields protected by stone walls.
A handful of homes, large and small, a school, two churches, and a fire house are located in the center
of the village. Parishioners come from more than fifteen surrounding towns and villages. In 2019, our
parish celebrated its 125th anniversary of its founding.

Father Tim, as he’s happy to be called, is a busy man, fully occupied with the pastoral role he took on in July 2022, growing his parish, which celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2019. “It’s a hidden gem,” he commented, “a really good parish with a strong multi-generational base and increasing numbers.”

A new face behind the pulpit and some new faces in the pews—some of them Black or Brown—are giving the Church of the Magdalene in Pocantico Hills renewed hope for its future as an independent Roman Catholic parish.
Since celebrating its 125th anniversary in November 2019, the threat of change has been in the air at the Magdalene, as its parishioners call their spiritual home (see https://thehudsonindependent.com/church-of-the-magdalene-celebrates-its-125th-year-anniversary/) ...
