PARISH LIFE

Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to you, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly yours, utterly dedicated unto you; and then use us, we pray you, as you will, and always to your glory and the welfare of your people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

One of the most basic functions of a Christian community is hospitality and table fellowship following Christ’s own practice. Parish life at St. Margaret’s offers the opportunity to experience fellowship and to learn more about God’s love for us through one another.  Through our worship and fellowship practices, our diverse parish has developed a very strong feeling of family.
