Welcome to St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Algonquin, Illinois. We welcome you to a strong and vibrant parish community that has been serving the Algonquin, Barrington Hills and Lake in the Hills communities for over 100 years. We just celebrated our 100th Anniversary in 2015, and we look forward to our next 100 years of being the active, friendly and growing faith community that has come to define us.
