SH3_5029DSCN0941Easter 2012 Welcome to St. Margaret’s

Wherever you are in your faith journey, you’ll find a warm welcome at St. Margaret’s. Whether you are an intentional seeker or merely passing through … whether you’re a cradle Episcopalian or someone just wondering about faith, we invite you to come and find a supportive and safe place to grow and explore.


Palm Sunday, March 29 – 7:15, 8:45, and 11:00 am

Also known as the Sunday of the Passion, our worship recalls Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and his Passion on the cross. The Passion is read dramatically from Mark’s Gospel, with the congregation taking the part of the crowd. Childcare, Joyful Noise Worship and the education hour are offered as usual.

The Stations of the Cross will be set up in Bristol Hall (for the entire Holy Week) for people to experience on their own.

Maundy Thursday, April 2 – 7:00 pm

Thursday in Holy Week begins the three holy days before Easter. Foot-washing and retelling Jesus’ Last Supper are its primary themes. This is a family-friendly service.

Following the Maundy Thursday service, a prayer watch is held throughout the night. You are invited to spend one hour watching and praying, as Jesus asked his disciples at Gethsemane, in the chapel or at home.

Good Friday, April 3 – 12 noon and 7:00 pm

Good Friday is the day the church commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus. It is a traditionally a day of fasting with special acts of discipline and self-denial. The services include the Good Friday liturgy with John’s account of the Passion, a form of intercession known as the solemn collects (dating from ancient Rome), and veneration of the cross. (Childcare available at 7:00 pm.)

Stations of the Cross - Following the noon service, walk and pray with others as we remember the path of Jesus through Jerusalem to his death on the cross.

The Great Vigil of Easter, Saturday, April 4 – 7:00 pm

At the Easter Vigil we tell the Old Testament stories through music and stories, then celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter and Holy Baptisms. This is a very family-friendly service, and children are warmly welcome.

Lenten Pray~ers 2015

This is the 28th year we have been doing our Meditations during Lent. Our Lenten Prayers are a personal response that comes from reflecting on a randomly chosen scripture. What makes these so wonderful is that they come from the heart of all of us, and all that we bring in our relationship with God. Download your copy here.
