How to get to Mary Mags
St Mary Magdalene's is the central parish of the City of Adelaide. It is within walking distance of Tartanyangga..also known as Victoria Square. (Close to the Hilton Hotel, the Treasury Adina and central city accomodations including Adelaide Backpackers. The Adelaide City Market is at hand, and there is a major tram stop in the Square) There is on-street parking, and also a parking station adjacent to the Church ( a bit pricey!)

Walking East from The Square, along Angas Street...about 500 metres  Moore Street is on the southern side [first street on the right 
(The Arts Theatre and the Royalty Theatre flank both northern corners of Moore Street ).

Or walking up or down Carrington Street..The Saracens Head Hotel .... is on the south western corner of Moore Street. (same side as St Mary Mags)

Holy Week Services 2017

Holy Week at St Mary Magdalene's 2017


Holy Wednesday - 12 April at 7.30pm - Tenebrae

Tenebrae (meaning ‘shadows’ or ‘darkness’) is a solemn liturgy. The choir sings plainsong psalms and lessons with canticles such as the Lamentations of Jeremiah and the Benedictus as the lights and candles in the church are extinguished one by one. This foreshadows the descent into the spiritual and emotional deep winter of Good Friday and the Crucifixion. The service ends in complete darkness. A dramatic service for Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday - 13 April at 7.30pm - Mass of the Lord’s Supper

The name 'Maundy Thursday' relates to the word 'Mandatum' which means 'commandment'. Jesus said to those with him at the Last Supper: "I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another."

The service finishes in silence, and a prayer vigil is maintained in the Chapel throughout the night and into the morning of Good Friday.


Good Friday - 14 April at 9am and 3pm

9 am – The Liturgy of the Day
3 pm – The Solemn Liturgy

On this day the Church commemorates Jesus’ crucifixion with some of the most deep and moving liturgies of the year.

The liturgies of Good Friday include the reading of the St John Passion in dramatic form, Solemn Prayers for the world and the Church, the Unveiling and Veneration of the Cross, and the reception of Holy Communion.


Easter Day - 16 April at 6am and 9.30am - Easter Services

5.30 am – Easter Vigil
9.30 am – Solemn Mass

The day begins before sunrise with the Easter Vigil. We gather outside for the lighting of the new fire and the blessing of the Easter (Paschal) candle. Moving into the hall, the Easter Proclamation is sung and we hear readings from scripture. Then we move into the church building to renew our baptismal vows and to celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter.

A free, celebratory breakfast follows.

At 9.30am our Easter celebrations continue with a Solemn Mass.

Morning tea with Resurrection Riesling follows.
