Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Contact: Ann Garvin (304) 428-4968
Isn’t it a joy to see the children gather during 11:00 Mass to receive Father’s blessing, and then troop down the main aisle on their way to “Children’s Church”? Children ages 4 through 10 proceed to the Parish Hall, where they listen to and discuss the day’s readings in terms they can understand. The children return to the church after the homily, and some of them carry up the gifts for the Offertory. This ministry is offered year-round, by volunteers who serve on a rotating schedule. You can simply join the children as they leave during the Mass, to observe the activity, if you wish – or call the Contact Person for more information. Men and women are encouraged to become leaders in this blessed ministry that nourishes the faith of our children!

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!
Vacation Bible School
Each summer St. Margaret Mary joins other area Catholic parishes to offer Vacation Bible School for four evenings in one week. Children from age 3 through the sixth grade are encouraged to attend. Programs for youth and adults are also included. Many youth and adult helpers are needed every year. Several preparatory meetings are held for these helpers.
