  • Update on 2018 St. Margaret Parish Photo Directory

  • In our present day climate where many are understandably protective of their family’s information, we wanted to clarify the intended reasons for the new parish photo directory.

    The hope of the parish council when voting for the photo directory was to allow parishioners a resource to see the many faces within our parish community and help to put “a name” to those faces that they may run into both here within our parish and also in town.

    NO CONTACT INFORMATION will be included in the parish photo directory. A photo of your choice, selected from those taken at your scheduled photo session, along with your name is all that will be included.

    We hope that this helps to clarify the intent for this directory and assist parishioners in making their decisions as to whether or not to be a part of it.

    Photo session appointments are still available during the week of Tuesday, April 24th – Saturday, April 28th and can be scheduled on-line via the parish web-site or by calling 1-866-756-0281.
