Welcome to St. Margaret’s
At St. Margaret’s our community bears witness to the presence of God in our lives through our commitment to justice, worship, care for one another, and love of our neighbor. We invite you to explore our website and to visit us. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we invite you to join us for worship and fellowship. God’s table is set every Sunday and there is a place for you.
New to St. Margaret’s?
We invite you to bring your questions, your yearnings for the holy, for meaning and purpose in life, and join us, whether online or in person, in our search to be people of God and followers of Jesus.
We are seekers who care deeply, laugh regularly, and take our faith seriously, but not ourselves. The Parish Life section collects tools, resources and information to enhance the spiritual and community life of our members.
Charlie’s Place was founded in 1990 as a non-denominational, anti-hunger, homeless ministry of St. Margaret’s by then-associate pastor Charles Gilchrist (1936-1999). What began as a group of socially concerned parishioners has now expanded to a weeklong program which prides itself on its reputation for providing a safe, reliable and welcoming environment. Charlie’s Place serves homeless and underprivileged populations in the neighborhoods of Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights.
