  • Clothing Drive Success! A Big Thank You to All

  • The 10th Grade Confirmation Classes of Mrs. Boretsky and Mr. Cropp would like to thank the many parishioners who brought in donations to the Clothing Drive. In this single weekend, the students collected 75 bags of winter clothing, more than 300 coats and blankets, 13 sleeping bags, and 120 hand-knit hats. Donations will benefit Loaves and Fishes, Life Haven, the Grand Avenue Men’s Shelter, and the homeless in New Haven. The Corporal Works of Mercy are indeed present at St. Margaret Church! May God bless you all!
