St. Mary Magdalene is a friendly Anglican parish located in the heart of St. Vital in south Winnipeg. We're a welcoming group and we'd love to have you join us for worship. If you're looking for a friendly church home, we hope you won't need to look further after being here.
Join us Sunday mornings at 10:30. Come early or stay after the service for coffee, conversation and fellowship.
Eucharist: the focus of Church life
Our building is busy throughout the week as groups from within the church and the surrounding community make use of the facility. But the essence of church life is Eucharist Sunday morning. That's the time when you clear your mind of the cobwebs of daily life and cleanse your soul in the company of God.
It's the time when you discover again each week how much God loves you despite all your human frailties. Eucharist at St. Mary Magdalene revolves around the forgiving and loving nature of God
through Jesus Christ. You are welcomed with open arms here.

St. Mary Magdalene is home to 27 not-for-profit community groups that use the church facilities for their programs. A long-time goal has been to pave a dirt lane beside the church to provide cleaner and safer access into the building. Two years ago, the rectory property was purchased by a daycare wanting to build a 48 space facility. This provided the opportunity to develop an eight space paved parking lot between the two buildings.
The Anglican Foundation provided a grant to help with the project. The parish designed the parking so that parents could use it for safe daycare drop-off and seniors could use it when attending programs in the church building. The church retains ownership and uses the lot on Sundays.
This project, completed in early July 2017, was a response to the call to be a Missional Church.
The Parish of St. Mary Magdalene is part of the Anglican Diocese of Rupert's Land.
