St. Margaret Mary Parish developed an online Advent Calendar in 1997, presenting an centuries-old tradition in a new way. Over the years, our website's Advent Calendar has received commendations from around the world.
We hope that the calendar will encourage you and your family to prayerfully participate in the Advent season. Please visit the calendar often during Advent.

Thanks to the generosity of many parishioners, the installation of the new Church lighting HAS BEGUN! Argo Electric started the installation on October 7. During this period, the Church will be closed during the week, but Masses will continue in Church on the weekends. Daily Masses will be held in the Upper Room. Please be patient and flexible during the important and much needed upgrade to our worship environment.
We are still accepting donations to support this Lighting Improvement project. Thanks to the generosity of many parish families, we met our fund raising goal, but the actual cost came in higher than anticipated. We are close, but still could use some additional funding. Please prayerfully consider if you could help fund this project, especially if you have not contributed yet. This improvement will allow us to provide a welcoming and flexible worship environment for our current parishioners and those in the future, formany years to come.
Again, thank you to all who have helped, and keep watching as this exciting installation progresses.
As a worshipping Roman Catholic parish family we are guided by a collegial partnership of laity, pastor, and ministerial staff. Together we seek to foster spiritual growth through the active practice of Christianity.
