St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church,

Welcome to your Parish Counseling Services page

We at Rejoice Parish Counseling are excited to serve parishioners of St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church and Catholic families around Humble. The patron saint of your parish offers us a great example of what happens when we receive the healing touch of Jesus Christ. Jesus cast out from her “seven demons” (Luke 8:2), a sign of extreme possession or severe illness, leading her to become a humble follower and eventually the first witness of the Resurrection. As Catholic counselors, we aim to carry on the healing mission of Jesus Christ, so that you too are encouraged to follow Him and experience His resurrection in your own life. We look forward to journeying with you in counseling.

Es nuestro agrado poder ofrecer servicios de consejería de salud mental a los feligreses, tanto en las instalaciones de St. Mary Magdalene como fuera de ellas. A través de asesoría individual, matrimonial o familiar, podemos proveerle con las herramientas necesarias para superar los desafíos de la vida diaria, a través de la fe católica. A continuación, encontrara la información sobre los servicios de asesoramiento católico disponibles para miembros de la Iglesia. Por favor comuníquese con nosotros; nuestro equipo de profesionales católicos está disponible para ayudarle.

– Dr. Chris Stravitsch, President

“Christ came to save the whole human person. Having faith-filled counselors provide support for parishioners who are dealing with individual, family, and marriage issues is a way of saving the whole human person. That is why we are partnering with Rejoice Parish Counseling and their Catholic counselors in our parish. I hope parishioners who need this support will avail themselves of the opportunity.”

-Fr. Felix Osasona, M.S.P., Pastor
