Advent Retreat

Discerning the Will of God, Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10.

Drawing from the timeless wisdom of St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Margaret’s Rector, the Rev. Richard Weinberg, will lead an Advent retreat to guide participants in how to make spiritual sense of decisions in life–from daily commitments to major choices like vocation, retirement, or marriage.

Join our anti-racism group, Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground is part of Becoming Beloved Community, the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. It is a small group series focused on engaging in transformational conversations about race.

Over the course of 11 meetings, participants will walk together through America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in their family story and experiences of economic class, and political and regional identity. Participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day – all while grounded in our call to faith, hope, and love.

This series is open to all. Classes begin the week of January 19, 2023. Email the Rev. Diana Gustafson for more information or to request a reading list.

Combat climate change with St. M's

This past Lent many at St. Margaret’s began to give up single-use plastics. Many of us are keeping up the fight: changing our lifestyles and the products we buy. We invite you to share your experiences, tips, and thoughts on Creation Care through a new online forum.

Submit your ideas and tips through this form.
