Parish Photo Directory

It has been 15 years since the last St. Mary Magdalen Parish Directory was published. This year, St. Mary Magdalen is working with Lifetouch Photography to produce a new Parish Directory and we are excited to offer you the opportunity to be part of it! We encourage all St. Mary Magdalen parishioners to participate!  Learn more here

Sign-ups for photography appointments will continue after all the weekend masses during the month of October. Pictures will be taken in the Chapel Museum on Ventura Blvd. for two weeks in November, December and January. Please refer to the bulletin for the photography schedule. 

Each family, couple, or single person having their portrait taken for the directory will receive a Complimentary 8x10 portrait plus a free copy of the new Parish Directory when it is published in the spring. You may purchase additional pictures at the time of your portrait sitting and Lifetouch has assured us that there will be NO pressure to buy anything unless you wish to. Since we are all concerned about our privacy, only your name is included in the directory NO personal information will be published.

This is also a great opportunity for a Holiday family portrait or Christmas cards. November 23rd is the deadline to take pictures for Christmas cards and Christmas Portraits must be taken no later than Dec. 7th for delivery before Christmas, so schedule early!

We will be outside of church after Mass to schedule appointments, which will be scheduled on a fist come first serve basis. We sincerely hope you will be part of OUR new parish directory! We need YOU to make it complete!!

During the week, you may also choose to sign up for a photo appointment online
