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.

We look forward to uniting with every volunteer within our faith community in celebration of the benefits each volunteer brings to our churches.

Each ministry to and of our churches plays a valuable role in our faith community. Each organization in service to the Church offers Father Marek indispensable community support. Each parishioner has God-given gifts to give in charity to the church, plus personal talents, skills and expertise to answer any and every need of our two churches. We want to celebrate hearts of charity.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Church. Opportunity abounds which requires a strong sense of commitment and a deep sense of faith to demonstrate the privilege to be found in volunteerism.


Mike Igoe exemplifies this style of volunteerism at St. Margaret parish, serving as a privilege rather than as a duty or obligation.


Mike is a communicant of St. Margaret church and resides in Buzzard's Bay with his wife, Heather. He possesses an eclectic body of interests, talents and skills. His mosaic approach to service brands his profession as a chef, an historian, an antique dealer, a soldier, a Knight of Columbus, a family head. Many readers will recognize him from past fundraisers and have seen him as chef at the Trading Post in Bourne.


Mike approaches opportunity to serve the Church with an open heart of charity and bended knee of humility. He began by answering an ad in the parish bulletin to mow lawn. Father Marek was first to recognize the abundance of God's gifts in Mike. They shared a spirit of eagerness to enliven the parish with celebrations that unite and benefit the church. Opportunities were created for Mike. Read More
