Welcome to St. Margaret Mary Parish!

 We are a church community with all kinds of different people

  • Some of us are unsure about faith, but seeking

  • Some of us have had an encounter with God and are unpacking what that means for our lives

  • Some of us are disciples of Christ excited to share how God has transformed our lives.

YET...

  • All of us have our particular gifts and limitations

  • All of us are sinners in need of redemption

NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE AT IN YOUR LIFE,

WE WELCOME YOU TO JOIN US ON THE JOURNEY OF FAITH!

We follow the Way of Jesus Christ as outlined in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition and passed down through the ages by the Catholic Church. For us, the Saints are our models and who we aspire to be one day.

A FEW THINGS THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL TO YOU

  • Let's Chat. We would love to get together with you to chat and learn where you are at in your faith and what you are looking for at this time. Please consider taking some time to get in touch with the priest, Father Oehring. He would be delighted to meet with you at the church office or at your home. ​ 

  • Get to know us through social media. We are on facebook, Twitter, and Youtube. The links are at the top of the page.

​​

  • Get connected with what's happening. Two ways are through our Monthly Newsletter and Calendar on the home page.

​​

  • Join us for Holy Mass. The Mass is the highest form of worship in the Catholic Church. We believe that God himself becomes present, dwells among us, and feeds us with the Word and the Holy Eucharist. You are most welcome to join us for the Holy Mass and to participate as much as you are able, for those who are not Catholic, we ask that they not receive the Holy Communion Host (a.k.a wafer).

  • Learn more about the Catholic Faith. Click the link below to find more resources about the Catholic Faith.

  • ​​Locate us. You can find our church by clicking the "Contact Us" link at the top of the page.

THE NEXT STEP

 Register with us to become a member/parishoner by using the three steps below.

1. Complete the Registration Form. Drop it off at the office or give it to the priest when you see him.

2.  Connect with us Online through "Flocknote"

By doing this you will help us to stay connected to you and let you know what's going on in the easiest way. Basically how it works is that you sign up with your email and cell number, then go through a list of all of the groups and activities going on in the parish, and choose which you would like to receive updates for. It's easy and you only have to do it once. After that, you will receive updates through email or text (you can set your preference) and receive updates on only the things you are really interested in. Further, don't worry, you can unsubscribe from any group at any time. 

3.  Check out Formed.org (Catholic Netflix)

Our parish subscribes to a media site (formed.org) which offers movies, faith development programs, talks, books, and even stuff for children. This is free to you when you join our parish. This is an invaluable resource and will help you to deepen your faith!

Jesus said "I have come that they might have life and have it more abundantly." We have had a taste of that "abundant life" and we want more! We welcome you to join us as we look with expectation towards the good things that God will do in our lives.
