Welcome to the website for St. Margaret Parish. This Roman Catholic community includes the worship site of St. Mary Star of the Sea. Together these two churches strive to grow in and share God's love in the Buzzards Bay and Onset area. Here you will find the basic information to help you participate in this faith-filled parish. Please call the office if you need further assistance. The friar-priests, deacons and office manager/staff are ready to help you as best we can. All are welcome to share in God's love. All are welcome to share in the work of evangelization and outreach. All are welcome to celebrate life in peace and in joy. God bless you.Fr. Bruce Czapla, ofmPastor
