October is Respect Life Month

October is Respect Life month.  The theme this year is “Christ Our Hope in Every Season of Life.”  The St. Margaret Respect Life Committee has organized the following ways we can support life with our prayer and action.


40 Days for Life Campaign

St. Margaret Parish will participate in the National 40 Days for Life Campaign.  Our focus will be to pray, fast and walk peacefully outside a clinic that performs abortions in Fullerton at the Belair Beltway Plaza(Belair Rd-1/4 mile south of the beltway).

Our days and times of participation are Saturday, October 19 from 7:00am to 7:00pm and Wednesday, October 23 from 10:00am to 2:00pm.  We are asking parishioners to commit to one hour of service to support life and to save innocent lives.  Please contact Craig Martin at craig.martin7@outlook.com to sign up for an hour and for more information or call the parish office.

Pro Life Class

 A four week Pro Life Engagement class will be offered at St. Margaret Parish beginning October 17 through November 14 (no Oct. 31) from 7:00 to 8:30pm in the AEC.  This class instructs how to have pro life conversations with family members, friends, co-workers and strangers in a loving and non-confrontational way.  Jody Ward will be the instructor and the cost of the course is $ 25 for individuals and $ 35 for couples.  Please contact Jody at prolifeengagement@gmail.com to register or call the parish office for more information.

Monday Adoration for Life

 On Monday, October 21 and every third Monday thereafter, our normal adoration will now be offered for the unborn during this day.  Adoration in the chapel is from 9:00am until 7:00pm.  Please consider committing an hour to prayer for the unborn in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Call the parish office if you are interested or email jdecapite@stmargaret.org.

Rosary for Life

A rosary for life will be prayed on Saturday, October 12 at 12:00pm at our Mission site in the front near Rt. 22.  This will be prayed in conjunction with national rosary rallies across the nation in remembrance of the miracles at Fatima.  Please join fellow parishioners in prayer.

Join us on Friday, November 15 for Bingo!
