About Us

Mary of Magdala Inclusive Catholic Community of Regina is a small faith community which gathers to celebrate Eucharist and promote actively living the Gospel.

As Companions of Jesus, we journey as equal disciples in a companionship of empowerment walking the way of justice, compassion and peace.

Eucharistic celebrations, other sacraments, and pastoral ministry at public venues and in your home are available on request.

As Servant Leader, Jane Kryzanowski, a Roman Catholic Woman Priest provides a ministry which includes a space for Holy Listening to whatever people have to say without judgement.  Seekers are encouraged to be attentive and listen to the still, small inner voice of the Beloved calling them to fullness of life.

Mary of Magdala Inclusive Catholic Community sponsors and promotes adult education and spiritual development opportunities to support individual and community efforts to be the hands and feet of Christ on their life journey.

Reconciliation of Indigenous and Settler people according to the call to action of the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission is of special concern to Mary of Magdala Inclusive Catholic Community

  • Use the book lists to borrow books.  The book lists are no longer in spreadsheet format, but your computer's page search will be most helpful.
  • Use the lists to take an inventory of books you have read. Then perhaps advise the librarian of a more accurate category or more accurate description for certain books.
  • Promote the books to friends, whether they are members of MMICC or not.  Everyone is welcome to borrow books or use the book lists.
  • Use names of books on the lists for looking up books on Amazon.ca or Amazon.com, to get a more extensive description of a book.
  • Use the list as a guide to books you might want to buy for yourself.
  • Short of buying a book, you might only want to read the introduction and the first chapter.  This can be done by finding a book on Amazon, then requesting a sample.
  • For further information on the use of the book list, or for using Amazon for look-ups or downloading samples, contact the librarian by email at mmiccRegina@gmail.com.

A Prayer For When I Feel Rejected

Loving God, you made me who I am.
I praise you and I love you,
for I am wonderfully made, in your own image.

But when people make fun of me,
I feel hurt and embarrassed and even ashamed.
So please God, help me remember my own goodness,
which lies in you.

Help me remember my dignity,
which you gave me when I was conceived.
Help me remember that I can live a life of love,
because you created my heart.

Be with me, loving God, when people hate me,
and help me to respond how you would want me to:
with a love that respects others, but also respects me.
Help me find friends who love me for who I am.
Help me, most of all, to be a loving person.


And God, help me remember that Jesus loves me.
For he was seen as an outcast, too.
He was misunderstood, too.
He was beaten and spat upon.
Jesus understands me,
and loves me with a special love,
because of the way you made me.

And when I am feeling lonely,
help me to remember that Jesus welcomed everyone as a friend.
Jesus reminded everyone that God loved them.

Jesus encouraged everyone to embrace their dignity,
even when others were blind to seeing that dignity.
Jesus loved everyone with the boundless love that you gave him.
And he loves me, too.

One more thing, God:
Help me remember
that nothing is impossible with you,
that you have a way of making things better,
and that you can find a way of love for me,
even if I can’t see it right now.

Help me remember all these things
in the heart you created, loving God.
Amen.

James Martin, SJ
