On Saturday, May 30 St. Margaret Mary Parish is holding a charity walk to benefit Loaves & Fishes Community Services (a registered 501(c)(3) organization, www.loaves-fishes.org that has served our community since 1984. Their vision is to end hunger in our community by providing food and mobilizing resources to empower people to be self-sufficient. Loaves and Fishes distributes over 60,000 pounds of groceries each week and they depend on a network of over 1,000 volunteers to collect, sort and stock their shelves and assist their clients.
Check-in and on-site registration will begin at 9:00 am. The program will start at 9:40 am and the walk will step off at 10:00 am. The event will end around noon. Everyone in the Naperville/DuPage County Community is invited to participate in this walk.

NO 12:15 PM MASSES JUNE THROUGH AUGUST
During the summer, many of our parishioners take advantage of the time to get away with their families for vacations or plan activities which keep them busy during the weekends. We see a noticeable drop in attendance, especially at the 12:15 PM Sunday Mass. Because of this, it has been decided that this summer, we will drop the 12:15 PM Mass during the Sundays in June through August. The remaining Mass times will remain the same.
The beginning of the Baptismal Rite, which we would normally do at the 12:15 PM Mass, will be moved to the 10:45 AM Mass on our regular Baptismal Sundays.
As usual, we do encourage parishioners to use the the automated donation service provided by Parish Pay for your convenience. This is a simple way to donate to the parish.
Thank you for your continued support for St. Margaret Mary Parish and we hope this summertime change will not cause any inconvenience, and everyone has a safe and blessed summer season.
