THANKSGIVING AT ST. MARGARET MARY. For sure, we have many blessings and graces to thank God for. A special way to say thank you to our Lord is the Eucharist. You are invited to join your parish family on Thursday at 9:00 AM for Holy Mass. Every year, we have the tradition of bringing wine and bread to this Mass, which will be blessed and then you can share at your Thanksgiving table. On the Friday after Thanksgiving, we have one Mass at 8:30 AM. (No 7:00 AM Mass or 9:15 AM on Friday the 27th). Parish Offices will be closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday the 27th. Thank you and have a blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!


FIRST FRIDAY EUCHARISTIC ADORATION. First Friday Masses are at 7:00 AM and 9:15 AM. There is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM with closing prayers and Benediction. Come and receive the graces promised from the source of ultimate love. Click here for more information and to signup for First Friday Adoration.
