THANK YOU, SMM FAMILY & FRIENDS FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR RECENT MARDI GRAS FUN RUN

Our SMM Mardi Gras Fun Run was a tremendous success because of the support and generosity of so many family members and friends. We made $29,000 which is $4,000 over our goal.


The PTO now has the budget covered and savings to put toward special projects, as well as donating 10% of our profit to an SMM family in need.


Together, we made a great thing happen!

Update on the Principal Position for 2020-2021

Dear St. Margaret Mary School Parents,


The Search Committee for the principal position for the school year 2020-2021

will meet this week to begin the process of discerning who will be principal for the 2020-2021 school year at St. Margaret Mary School.



Please pray for this deliberation that God will inspire the Search Committee

to offer a wise recommendation for the principal position.


As soon as possible I will announce the decision based on their recommendations.


Thank you for your patience and prayers!


Father Ed

Pastor

WE GIVE OUR HEARTS TO OUR FAMILIES


Students who participated in the February service project should bring their hearts to Mass this Friday, March 6th. They will be collected before Mass and presented on the altar.

NO MEAT ON FRIDAY ... NO PROBLEM

The Men's Club has got you covered. Our Fabulous, Famous Friday Fish Fry dinners are available Fridays from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.


Dine In or Drive Thru Service available.


For only $10.00, you can choose a plate of delicious fried catfish, mac n' cheese, green beans, roll OR fish tacos, potatoes, green beans. What a deal!

FISH FRY SERVICE HOURS OPPORTUNITY

St. Margaret Mary Men's Club will once again be serving up the tastiest fried fish in the city on Fridays during Lent. We really need some high school volunteers to help out. We need 12 students from 3:30 pm to 9:00 pm every Friday night beginning February 28 through April 3.


There are a limited amount of slots. If there are none available because the slots are full, please do not just show up. There is not enough work for more than 12 students.


If you sign up to work but later find out you will be able to do so, please delete your name from the slot so that someone can take your place.


PJP students, please do not use your PJP email address. The PJP email system will not allow responses to student emails. Please use your personal email address.


We're using SignUp.com (the leading online SignUp and reminder tool) to organize our high school volunteers for service hours.
