Additional Donation Opportunities at Saint Mary Magdalene
Fr. Kelly was given this statue as a gift for his 50th birthday. It has been in his office since he moved into the new office building in 2008.
This statue will be the central focus over the altar in the Day Chapel of the new church. To be able to name this statue for yourself or a loved one, the donation is available for $40,000
The picture is of a Gothic style lectern. It was donated to us by Nancy Clarke. She outbid Fr. Kelly for it in an auction in Jacksonville, and later, in a qualm of conscience, she gave it to SMM. God works in mysterious ways!
This lectern is available for a donation of $25,000 and will be the stand for the proclamation of the scriptures in the Day Chapel.
These are stations of the Cross for the New Church at SMM.
Fr. Kelly bought them recently in Holland. They are due to arrive soon. They are large and very colorful oils on canvas.
The plan is to clean some of them that need it, and to store them safely in an air-conditioned location, perhaps in Fr. Kelly's attic in the rectory. The inscriptions are in Dutch, and Father intends to leave those in place for the sake of integrity and authenticity of the art. English texts will appear close by these stations will be placed at eye level rather than way up on the wall, so that saying the Stations is more pleasant.
