Worship
Worship is central to our life together at St. Margaret’s. We invite you to join us for one of our Sunday or weekday services. For special occasions, such as Pentecost, St. Margaret’s Day, Worship at the Park, and Christmas, we change the worship schedule. Those changes will be noted here and communicated through our weekly email Dear People.
