Coming Soon:

Lighten Up!”… A Celebration of Faith and Family!” is coming to our parish.  Nationally-known Catholic Insirational comedian, singer, storyteller, teacher, and author Doug Brummel and his cast of characters will lead our parish community on a unique faith journey on August 20-21, with a start time of 6:47pm. (Yes, you read it right… 6:47pm)  Many people of our parish are sharing their time and talents in preparing for this mission.

We look forward to seeing everyone at Lighten Up!  Admission is free.  A free-will offering may be available.  For more information see


 Annual Yard Sale   to be held on September 7 and 8, 2012.  Information will be published soon.



Examples of parish-wide events held throughout the year: 


Parish wide book reading and films with discussion groups offer opportunities to learn and discuss matters of faith.   


Parish Missions offer an opportunity for all parishioners and interested parties to learn more about their faith.  In 2012, Dough Brummel of “Lighten Up Ministries” presents a mission at St Margaret Mary church on August 20-21.  See Calendar events for more information.


All are invited to visit the booth at Escalante Days in Dolores in August, staffed by people from the Our Lady of Victory church. 


An annual Craft Fair early in the Christmas season serves as a fundraiser and opportunity for people to work together and to get items for personal use or gifts.


An annual Yard Sale in the fall is a fundraiser which provides a way for people to donate or buy items no-longer needed by the person donating, but of use to the buyer.     


Stations of the Cross offer prayerful opportunities to reflect on Jesus’ suffering and death during the season of Lent.


Spiritual Walks are held providing opportunities for prayer, fellowship, faith sharing and contemplation while walking.


“Las Posadas” (the Inns” in Spanish) are conducted at various times and places at Christmastime.  These are an ancient Spanish and Mexican tradition re-enacting Mary and Joseph’s search for a place to stay before Jesus was born.
