St. Margaret & St. Mary Churches
May the Lord give you peace! We extend a very sincere welcome to all who will be joining us this weekend, especially if you are joining us for the first time. No matter where you are on your faith journey, we hope that you will encounter within our community, the peace and joy that comes from knowing and loving Christ.
If you have never registered in our parish community and feel called to do so, please introduce yourself to us so that we may get to know you and help you in the process. We hope that you will share your TIME & TALENT with us to help our parish grow.
“We, the people of God, welcome all to experience the nourishment and healing spirit of Jesus Christ. Drawing life from the word of God and the sacraments, we are empowered to assist in meeting the spiritual and human needs of our families, our parish, and larger community. We proclaim the Kingdom of God with compassion, mercy and understanding."
