Saint Mary of Magdala

Saint Mary of Magdela is far more than just one of the Myrrhbearing Women the church remembers on the Third Sunday of Pascha; her life is of such great magnitude that it is referred to as the Primacy of Mary. That Mary of Magdala is venerated in the Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, several Protestant churches, and even in the Baha’i Faith tradition, speaks of her prominence.

This morning (May 19, 2013) after Divine Liturgy, Ms. Madegan Morrison presented a book shelf she constructed for the Holy Trinity Lending Library, which was previously housed in Baronosky Library downstairs. At the beginning of the 2012-2013 academic year, Madegan, 14, a Cadette Girl Scout who will bridge to a Senior Girl Scout on June 10, was challenged with the task of creating a project which uses her skill set and abilities to serve her community, and came up with the idea of the book shelf.

In October, 2012, Madegan had established a lending library for Holy Trinity. In addition to cataloging, organizing and establishing a borrowing system for the books, videos, and DVDs, Madegan made the book shelf in her Tech Ed (Industrial Arts) class at Captain Nathan Hale Middle School in Coventry, where she is an 8th grade student. Madegan is only one of three girls in her troop to earn the Silver Award which is the highest honor a Cadette Girl Scout can achieve.

Madegan is a tremendous blessing to our community. She sings in the choir, is an active participant in our church school program, holds the Communion cloth weekly, and brings so much joy into our community that it is difficult to quantify.
