Our Parish Newsletter!
As our parish community continues to grow and develop stewardship as a way of life, we recognize the need for increased communication. In upcoming issues, we will focus on what’s going on in the St. Margaret Mary community, and how those activities and events are changing hearts and minds and helping parishioners grow closer to Christ and each other. Each article will ultimately focus on Christ at work within our community through the stewardship way of life.
Through this newsletter, we hope to share stories that will help us all to better understand who we are as Catholics and what we are doing as individual members of Christ’s family.
Our hope is that this newsletter will be a successful means for ongoing education and formation in our faith, and I pray it will be a vehicle through which you are informed and inspired to become more actively involved in the life of Christ and the parish.
Peace and Goodness,
Fr. Peter Sarnicki OFM, Conv.
