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 will celebrate the 125th anniversary of its founding.
