St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church

February 25, 2021
Dear St. Margaret Mary Parishioners,
During the recent Winter Storm, our parish experienced significant damage to all three of its parish buildings, with the worst of the damage having been in our Religious Education Building and Benish Center, which includes our Parish Administrative Offices.
As work continues on the remediation of the damages and the rebuild process, we have temporarily relocated our Parish Administrative Offices to the Ministry and Special Events Rooms in the Church building.  
Included in this move is the Reception Office, which typically services our walk-in visitors.  Beginning, Friday, February 26th, this office will be located in the Ministry Room in the Church building.  There will be signs directing you to the Reception Office location.  If you need to visit our Reception Office in person, enter through the door furthest to the West of the Church building. This is the metal door with the installed depository Drop Box.
Our parish office hours will remain 9:00am - 4:00pm, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and 9:00am - 6:30pm, Tuesday and Thursday. (Closed daily from 12:30 - 1pm for lunch.)
Please know that your parish staff is working hard to continue serving our parish community as seamlessly as possible!  Again, thank you for your support during this challenging time.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Luis Alberto Caceres

Estimados Feligreses de St. Margaret Mary,
Durante la reciente tormenta de invierno, nuestra parroquia experimentó daños significativos en los tres edificios parroquiales, y el peor de los daños fue en nuestro Edificio de Educación Religiosa y el Centro Benish, que incluye nuestras Oficinas Administrativas Parroquiales.
A medida que continúa el trabajo en la reparación de los daños y el proceso de reconstrucción, hemos reubicado temporalmente nuestras oficinas administrativas parroquiales a las salas de Ministerio y de Eventos Especiales en el edificio de la Iglesia.
En este movimiento se incluye la Oficina de Recepción, que normalmente atiende a nuestros visitantes sin cita previa. A partir del viernes 26 de febrero, esta oficina estará ubicada en el Salón del Ministerio en el edificio de la Iglesia. Habrá letreros que lo dirigen a la ubicación de la Oficina de Recepción. Si necesita visitar nuestra Oficina de Recepción en persona, ingrese por la puerta más al oeste del edificio de la Iglesia. Esta es la puerta de metal con el ‘Drop Box’ de depósito instalado.
El horario de oficina de nuestra parroquia seguirá siendo de 9:00am - 4:00pm el Lunes, Miércoles y Viernes, y de 9:00am - 6:30pm los Martes y Jueves. (Cerrado todos los días de 12:30 - 1pm para el almuerzo.)
¡Sepan que el personal de su parroquia está trabajando arduamente para continuar sirviendo a nuestra comunidad parroquial de la manera más fluida posible! Nuevamente, gracias por su apoyo durante este momento desafiante.
Suyo en Cristo,
P. Luis Alberto Cáceres

In biblical usage, “Stewardship” is the management of whatever a person is entrusted with, not only to preserve but profitably administer for his master, ultimately for God. Christ proposed the faithful steward as model for the responsible Christian (Luke 12:42). The Apostles are chosen stewards of the divine mysteries (I Corinthians 4:1-2), and every Christian is a steward of the mysteries of God (I Peter 4:10). Jesus praised the unjust steward of the parable, not because he was dishonest, but because of his foresight, since "the children of this world are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light" (Luke 16:1-8). This is the ultimate lesson of stewardship: that a human being is not owner but only custodian of God's gifts in this world, to use them and produce with them the fruits of eternal life.
(Etym. Old English stigweard, "keeper of the hall": stig, hall + weard, keeper.)

PLEASE BE AWARE OF A SCAM: Parishioners are once again receiving texts and emails asking for gift cards or other assistance that appear to be from Father Henry, Father Luis, and now Bishop Joe Vasquez, but it is indeed a scam. If you receive one of these, please do not reply. ******THIS IS A SCAM******
TENGA EN CUENTA DE UNA ESTAFA: los feligreses nuevamente están recibiendo mensajes de texto y correos electrónicos solicitando tarjetas de regalo u otra asistencia que parecen ser del Padre Henry, el Padre Luis, y ahora del Obispo Joe Vasquez, pero de hecho es una estafa. Si recibe uno de estos, por favor no responda. ******ESTO ES UNA ESTAFA******
