Magdalene Circle

Bringing together women of faith, across generations and committed to collective social impact, through a sustained investment in servant leadership.

Mary Magdalene:
First Witness to the Risen Christ

We draw inspiration from St. Mary Magdalene – once discredited, now celebrated as the first person to whom the resurrected Christ appeared and proclaim the good news to the earliest disciples. “Apostle to the Apostles,” Mary of Magdala symbolizes the importance of the female voice in the global Church community.
