Our cafeteria wall has stenciled on it the words of Jesus, “Let the children come to me. It is to just such as these that the Kingdom of God belongs.”  Saint Margaret School is rooted in our belief that each child is a precious gift of God.   We teach them and help them to come to God, but they also teach us how to have a childlike trust in God and a spirit of wonder and joy.  It is a joy to see our children grow in wisdom, age and grace, and to be blessed by their presence among us. 

Msgr. Paul Dougherty, Pastor

Legacy has blessed our halls, but one important component is our Mercy way. Never having forgotten those who have paved our path, we continue to embrace hospitality, compassion, integrating, service, community, and prayer. It is always so refreshing to hear from graduates and welcome their children into our community. Many will note we have moved on into the twenty first century, accepting the challenges of new curriculum and technology. What is at the heart of what we do and what we represent? We can respond. We are preparing our children to be inventors of peace, and dignity but most of all to be alive in Love of Christ.

Ms. Terri Power, Principal
