Saint Margaret Parish

Catholic Church

Est. 33 a.d.

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 present church was completed in 2007.

The parish is pleased to participate in the 2017 “The Joy of Love” Annual Catholic Appeal. This appeal supports charitable needs throughout the Diocese of San Diego. Your gifts make possible the work that impacts so many in our diocese: service to the poor and imprisoned, education for children in Catholic schools and training of catechists, formation of candidates for the priesthood, ministry to our youth and to young people on university campuses, preparation of couples for marriage, and support for parish development in Imperial Valley. You can make your contribution at Online Giving or at or by picking up a brochure and response card at the parish.
