Surrounded by the landscapes, flowers and plants that inspired Jesus in his teachings, Magdala brings the Gospel to life to all who visit it. It is from this special site, a site related to the healing that Jesus offers, to Mary Magdalene and hence to all Christians, that we want to support all those who are seeking an encounter, renewal and reconciliation with our Lord to find it.
In Magdala we are working on a deep reflection about the dignity of womanhood, the coming of the Kingdom of God, and the magnificence of the Divine Mercy. Walking across the First Century Synagogue, the mikvaot (Jewish ritual baths), and archaeological excavations in Magdala allows us to travel back to our roots, catalyzing unity among different cultures, communities, ethnicities and religions.
The Magdala Mosaic Family is the collective group of unique individuals who join in supporting Magdala and its mission, vision, purpose as well as upholding its values through the Magdala Mosaic Campaign. The Magdala Mosaic Family is composed by Intercessors that pray for Magdala, Ambassadors that promote Magdala, Benefactors that generously support Magdala, Volunteers that give their time to Magdala, and Partners that link other projects or organizations with Magdala.
