Our Filipino Community
This Community, within our larger Parish Community, is made up of people who speak the many Filipino languages. They gather together monthly to support each other.
at St Margaret Mary
The Filipino Community has mass on the 4th Sunday of the Month at Saint Catherine of Siena Church in West Dundee. Because of the necessary Preparation for the Simbang Gabi there will be no monthly mass in November and December. The Celebration of the Simbang Gabi at Saint Margaret Mary Parish is TBA.
Simbang Gabi is a Philippine tradition of celebrating a novena of nine Advent masses, in preparation for the celebration of Christmas.
Many in this community serve in the ministries of the larger parish, but they also need help specific to their celebrations.
