Our Dominican Past

St. Mary Magdalen Parish was organized by the Western Dominican Province as a Dominican Parish and remained so through June 30, 2017. The publication celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Parish documents the birth and growth of our parish. (Give this PDF file a few moments to load.)

A brief discussion on the history of St. Dominic and the Dominican order can be found here.

A timeline of the departure of the Dominicans from our parish can be found here.
