Parish Life Ministries
Many leaders and volunteers are needed to support the whole work of the Church, as we seek to support one another in our life of faith and share the Good News of Christ to the whole world. St. Margaret's thrives because of the energy and talent of our many members, and you're invited to take part in the vitality and growth of our parish.
