Mary Magdalen Feast Day Ideas

St. Mary Magdalene’s feast day is July 22, and you can find all my posts about living liturgically in July here. When she met Jesus, she was sorry for her sinful ways, and used her long beautiful hair to clean his feet- then anointed them with expensive perfume. She was present at our Lord’s crucifixion, and at the empty tomb. Here are some ideas to help you celebrate her feast day 🙂

Try making some simple rose perfume in

memory of Mary Magdalen anointing Jesus’ feet.

Or bake some Empty Tomb rolls. They’re
super yummy and easy to make!
Mary Magdalen is the patron saint of hairdressers, so try
out a fun hair style for the day! Here’s a blog totally
devoted to cute hair styles with great pictures and directions!

Hairstyles for Girls

Or, try making these “hair raising” cupcakes.

Are these too cute, or what?!
