|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.
March 9 Come for an overview of St. Margaret’s Lenten offerings: discussion and study groups, ways to serve others, and reflective programs and possibilities for your spiritual and physical engagement. The focus of the rest of the Sundays in Lent will be on some of the organizations with which our parish partners in ministry. The Rector Chris Jillard will lead the conversation.
March 16 Congregations for the Homeless. Learn about our involvement as well as all the ways this organization supports men from homelessness to housing.
March 23 Mission to Seafarers. Come meet Ken Hawkins, who directs the mission that welcomes the seafarers who land at the Port of Seattle. Hear about our support of this ministry.
March 30 Emergency Feeding Progam. We collect food each week for this ministry. Learn how this food makes a difference to hungry people in our community.
April 6 La Iglesia Episcopal de la Resurreccion Welcome clergy and children from Resurreccion who will tell us about their ministry in the Skagit Valley and the summer Day Camp program (where our youth will go on mission this summer).
