St. Mary Magdalene Affirms…
St. Mary Magdalene seeks to honour the inclusive vision of Jesus. We aspire to a spirit of openness inherent in historic Anglicanism. We are committed to a transformative way within an achingly beautiful and burdened world. In our commitment to Christianity as a path and practice within Fairview, the parish community of St. Mary Magdalene affirms and commits itself to the following:
We celebrate the inclusive table fellowship of Jesus as the centre of our communal life and our commitment to intentional hospitality;
We embrace Christianity as a transformative way: a way of wisdom and compassion grounded in an awareness of the interdependence of all life;
We understand respect for all creation to be a fundamental ethical and spiritual issue;
We are seekers of spiritual and pastoral expressions that address issues of consumerism, isolation and superficial religiosity;
We proclaim a prophetic social witness expressive of Jesus’ proclamation of the Reign of God;
We are grounded in our commitment to the spirit of historic Anglicanism which celebrates and engages diversity and difference.
