Sea Sunday

Today is Sea Sunday, when the church prays especially for all those who live and work at sea. There will be a second collection for the Apostleship of the Sea, the official maritime welfare agency of the Catholic Church. This agency provides practical and spiritual support to seafarers visiting our ports. As it is dependent upon voluntary donations, please give generously. For more information on the work of the AoS please visit www.apostleshipofhtesea.org.uk.


Welcome to the web site for the parish of St. Mary Magdalen Ipswich we welcome all visitors and newcomers to the Church, and hope that you find everything you are looking for on this site. Our aim is to keep this web space up to date with current parish news, information and events, aiming to be accessible for the people of the parish and the community in which we are situated.

We have recently had a change of priest, with Fr Russell Frost who has been at St Mary Magdalen church for over 13 years, being appointed as Director of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. We wish Fr Russell every success and happiness in his new role.

At the same time we bid farewell to Fr Russell, we welcome Canon Mathew George who has been appointed by Bishop Alan to be Priest in Charge of St Mary Magdalen parish for an interim 6 month period pending further changes to the deanery anticipated later in the year.

Under the guidance and leadership of Fr Mathew, we are looking to expand and enrich our community in youth projects, music in worship, children's liturgy and other areas. Details will follow as they emerge. If you want to be active in our future please speak with Fr Mathew at the church, or use the contact page. If you have any comments about this site,its content or suggestions for additional content, please use the contact form and send a message to the webmaster.
