St. Margaret's is a bunch of seekers who care deeply, laugh regularly, and take our faith seriously, but not ourselves. The practice of radical hospitality is essential to us. We break bread together with joy, rejoice in our mutual gifts with gusto, and support one another through the challenges of life. If you want a piece of the action, come on over. If something below speaks to you, give a shout to the folks listed, or to the clergy, and we'll hook you up.
The St. Margaret's 20s and 30s group hosts a monthly brunch (usually on the 2nd Sunday of the month) as well as service opportunities throughout the year. Join the St. Margaret's 20's and 30's Email Group for more information!
It is easy with our busy lives to feel disconnected from others. For those who wish to meet and get to know other members, joining a St. Margaret's Potluck Group may be the answer. Interested parishioners are placed in groups that choose a regular time each month to meet to share a meal and fellowship. Group members rotate hosting, and each participant brings a dish to share, often around a specific theme, cuisine, or occasion. If you would like to join a Potluck Supper group, please contact Ms. Carlin Rankin.
For years St. Margaret's has thrown a parish-wide party the evening before Lent begins. We celebrate our Anglican roots and love of Mardi Gras with pancakes and jambalaya. During the week before Easter, when Lent ends, we have a simple supper together on Maundy Thursday, with parishioner John McCall's legendary lamb stew. And of course on Easter Sunday, we kick it old school. There are deviled eggs and little crustless cucumber sandwiches.
For more information about helping out with any of these annual Lenten gatherings, please contact Lou Steadwell.
In observance of the feast day of St. Francis, we offer a blessing of the pets on the steps of St. Margaret's on a Sunday in early October. Bring your beloved pet of any variety to this most delightful short service. Of course, all animal companions are welcome to come to the regular service on that Sunday as well!
