Hearts on Fire: Encounter Jesus and Embrace God's 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 2017 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.

Morning Enrichment - Wednesday, March 8

Sr. Mary Carroll
Jewels of the Church:
Teresa of Avila and Therese of Lisieux
Speaker: Sr. Mary Carroll, SSSF
Wednesday, March 8
9:15 AM — 11:15 AM
Cor Center
Donation: $8

Come meet two of the female doctors of the Church. Sr. Mary will be dressed in a full medieval habit and will address the audience as if she herself were Teresa. She will regale us about the saint’s family life and early struggles to keep up her devotions.

In the second half of the session, Sister Mary will tell the story of St. Therese of Lisieux and how the disciplined Carmelite was transformed from being the spoiled child of parents who had once hoped they themselves would enter holy orders.

This Lenten session will help us recall: Who taught me to pray? What is a prayer form I enjoy?

Sr. Mary Carroll is a member of the School Sisters of St Francis. She teaches theology at Sacred Heart Seminary in Hales Corners, WI.

Evening Enrichment - Wednesday, March 15

got Forgiveness?
Wednesday, March 15
7 PM at St. Margaret Mary
Forgiveness is the hardest thing we are called to do, yet it is exactly what
Christ invites us to do as His disciples. Join us for an interactive and engaging
evening of reflection, music, and a 'forgiveness rite', as we come to
understand what Christ asks us to do: forgive others and forgive ourselves.
The evening is facilitated by Rebecca Siar (our Echo Parish Apprentice
from the University of Notre Dame) and Deacon Joe Ferrari (SMMP).
