Parish School of Religion begins on September 16th at 9:40 in the PAC for children kindergarten through 8th grade.  Although PSR is provided for children not attending Catholic Schools, all children in the parish are invited and encouraged to participate. September 16th will be a family event, meaning that parents are also expected to attend.  We will hand out the schedule for the upcoming year and provide Season of Creation activities for both parents and children. Please come and learn about the Pope’s passion and our responsibility for caring for Creation.

Parkersburg Youth Group

Youth group will be every Wednesday at 7:43 pm (after the 7pm Mass). We will alternate between St. Margaret Mary & St. Francis Xavier. Come and see what youth group (9th -12th) is all about! Lots of events planned!

Policy Change – Renting the Parish Hall

The following changes are being made to our policy for renting the Parish Hall.

  • The Parish Hall may only be reserved by active parishioners or non-profit organizations.
  • For parishioners, the event must be tied to a Sacrament (Marriage reception, Baptism
    celebration, etc.).  The Parish Hall may not be reserved for parties for anniversaries,birthdays, graduations, baby or wedding showers, etc. (unless it was scheduled before July 2018)
  • It has become necessary to require a $100 “clean-up” fee for any parishioner or group
    using the Parish Hall.
  • Renters will be required to purchase a Special Events Coverage insurance policy through the
    Diocese of Wheeling Charleston.  Current cost is $100.
  • There will be no rental charge for use of the Parish Hall.
    Although no rental fee will be charged, if you wish to make a donation to help with the costs of
    maintaining our facilities, you are most welcomed to do so.
