Prayer for
Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Soup and Bread Supper

On the Fridays of Lent beginning February 24th through March 31st, Stations of the Cross will take place at St. Margaret's at 6:00PM. And will be followed by a Soup and Bread Supper in our Parish Hall sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.

Lenten Fasting and Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards. Please click HERE for our Lenten schedule.

Adoration on Fridays during Lent

We would like to continue the parish tradition of
having Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Fridays during Lent from 8:30am-6:00pm, closing with the Stations of the Cross and Benediction.
In order to make this happen someone needs to be in the church throughout the time the Sacrament is exposed. Please consider signing up for an hour or whatever time you can spare. Sign up sheets will be located at the street entrance of St. Margaret Church for each week. Begins Friday February 24th, 2023.

When we have a significant amount of snow or ice on the roads and sidewalks,  we share community weather situations that need to be addressed. When Bourne public schools and town offices are closed on a weekday on account of a weather situation, our Churches and Parish Office will also be closed. We want to keep our parishioners safe. Your safety is most important to us! When you are not comfortable going outside because of a significant weather situation, please use your better judgment and stay at home!!
