Our church is named after our patroness, St. Margaret of Scotland, who gave heroic witness as a disciple of Christ and a faithful daughter of the Church. She is the example of sanctity, a faithful wife and true mother, always devoted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Her faith was manifested in her charity to the poor and especially those orphaned because of war and neglect. She is also remembered as a teacher, liturgist and builder of churches. She died in 1092.
The 2016 Annual Catholic Appeal “Celebrating the Year of Mercy” is your opportunity to make possible the work that affects so many in our diocese: assistance to the poor, education of those who attend Catholic schools, formation of new priests and care for our retired priests, evangelization and support of Young Adults, and the consoling presence of Christ for those imprisoned. St. Margaret’s ACA assessment goal for 2016 is $26,000. You can make your contribution at Online Giving or at www.sdcatholic.org or by picking up a brochure and response card at the parish.
