What is Magnify?

A night of adoration in the church with praise & worship to supplement that encounter with Jesus. In addition, we bring in a new speaker each month to give an engaging talk.

This night is the perfect opportunity to jump into something beyond Mass at St. Mary's if you're struggling to find an entry point. We'll have community that meets afterward, and prayer teams around the church during the night. Come on your own or bring a friend and spend some time with our Lord!

The livestream will be both on Facebook and on this page when the event is live.
