|Growing in Spirit and Learning
St. Margaret’s offers a wide range of options to help in the life long process of growing spiritually. We recognize the need at any age to feed the mind as well as the soul with good teaching, and to provide an opportunity for deepening our relationship with God through the gifts of the Spirit.At St. Margaret’s we have learned that this can happen a number of different ways and we provide a wide range of spiritual growth opportunities.
