Dear Prospective Parishioner,


Welcome to our parish and High Springs! I invite you to grow with us, pray with us and live the sacramental life of the Church as followers of Jesus Christ with us. 

Our members come from all over the United States. We are comprised of young and old, working and retired people who share a common love of our Lord and a spirit of friendship and compassion as the people of God. 

We have a vibrant, warm parish that has experienced tremendous growth and change since the first Mass was said in 1906 by Fr. Patrick Bresnaha in a parishioner’s home. Looking around the campus you will see the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche, Fr. Sebastian Hall (formerly the Family Life Center) with a gift shop for religious articles, the Rectory, the Knight’s Pavilion for fish fries, the Parish Office, the Activities building and, of course, our beautiful Church. We work closely with our Community Outreach Center in High Springs. Our Catholic mission, "San Juan", is located in Branford (about 45 minutes northwest of our campus). A link to out mission can be found here:

As you learn about the many ministries and organizations within St. Madeleine, prayerfully consider joining one of them. If any member of the Welcoming Ministry, Pastoral Team or I can be of assistance, please call (386) 454-2358 or email the office at 

Again, welcome to our parish family. Come and let us adore the Lord. May his love shine on you.  

In Christ’s Love, 

Reverend Marek Dzien

Pastor, St. Madeleine Catholic Church
