Sr. Madelyn asked me to present an Evening Enrichment program on the Enneagram, a tool for self-knowledge and spiritual transformation. I agreed, but forewarned her that my treatment would be different from popular studies. The Enneagram has, in fact, many different manifestations — two of which are relevant to the spiritual seeker. I will briefly describe them both and their possible use to one seeking freedom and integrity.

Lent 2018

Hearts on Fire

This Lent: Encounter Jesus and Embrace His Kingdom

St. Margaret Mary joins with the whole Church in celebrating the Lenten Season. We invite you to participate in the traditional Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Please join in our parish's various activities to aid us in our Lenten journey, as we prepare to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Please see our Lent 2018 Calendar, which lists our many parish events during Lent.

Please also see our parish Lenten Practices, which offers many ideas to participate further in our journey together.

Communal Reconciliation Service — Sunday, March 4

Reconciliation Service
Communal Celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation
Sunday, March 4
5:00 PM in church

The large baptismal font to the left of the church sanctuary is more than a place for baptism. It is a visual reminder of how much God loves us by creating us, in Christ, as “works of art” and intending for us to live a good life. When we fail to live up to this baptismal calling, we can rely on God, who is rich in grace and generous in mercy.

You are invited to a communal celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Approximately one hour, this service will include an examination of conscience, the opportunity for private confession, and a ritual at the baptismal font. Please join the parish community for this Lenten prayer and recommit yourself to live as God’s work of art.
