GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP. You are not alone. You don’t have to grieve in secret just because everyone else wants you to get back to your normal life. We meet every 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:30 PM in the Ministry Center. If you have questions, please contact Deacon Don Miller at 847-915-8474.


FOOD PANTRY WEEKEND. Saint Margaret Mary Church marks the 2nd Sunday of the month as Food Pantry Sunday. Help the Food Pantry by bringing in non-perishable items, when you come to Mass on the weekend of July 11-12th, and please help those who are in need.


4TH ANNUAL PARISH FAMILY PICNIC & PIG ROAST! All are invited to join us on the parish grounds between the Church and Ministry Center on Saturday, July 11th from 5:00 PM to Dusk. This is a wonderful parish family event featuring delicious roasted pork with all the “fixins.” Kid’s meals are also available and we will have games, music, fellowship and fun for the entire family. Save big by purchasing tickets in advance in Bethany Lobby after mass. Don't miss this great summer parish event!

MASS FOR FAMILIES WITH SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN. Families who have children with disabilities have unique challenges in our world. The Lord invites all his children to come to Him. Let us come together in prayer with our special intentions at Holy Mass at 7:00 PM at Saint Margaret Mary.


FAITH ON FIRE: MEN'S KAIROS PRISON MINISTRY TEAM. 7:30 in McDonnell Hall. “Warmth, love, and faith” may not be the first words that come to mind when thinking about what goes on inside a maximum security prison.
