Welcome . . .
St. Augustine is credited with calling Christ, “ever ancient, ever new.” As Catholics, we recognize the need for the Church to have one foot firmly established in the ancient traditions and devotions of our faith, while having the other foot always stepping out courageously into the modern age in which we live. It is in this spirit that we of St. Margaret Mary Parish in Terre Haute welcome you to our parish community through our website. In this site, we invite you to discover the amazing events coming up, listen to the weekly homilies, meet our wonderful staff and volunteers, and explore our mission to be an active, diverse community brought together by the story of God working in and through our lives. I hope you enjoy your visit to this website, and through it, I hope you feel welcomed to our wonderful parish family! May God bless you!
Fr. Daniel Bedel
PS. See you at Mass!
Reflections from Deacon Mike . . . A Real Scare Comes
One of the early games many parents, including myself, played with our children involves a fake scare. A mom or dad hides their face behind their hands and suddenly reveals themselves while saying, "BOO!" The child giggles at their silliness.
Being frightened is fun until the day when the child experiences a real scare. Then it's no laughing matter. The first real scare sometimes involves separation from their parent. The child wanders away innocently, moving from one attraction to another. But as soon as the child realizes they are lost, they panic and let out a loud cry of alarm. The parent immediately comes running to reassure the child that they are not alone. As we get older, our fake scares get more sophisticated like scary books or movie, amusement park rides and so on. Being scared becomes so invigorating that we begin to take bigger risks for bigger thrills.
But when a real scare comes, like a sudden death, a divorce, loss of job, sickness and so on, we may realize that we are in danger or lost, we panic. Our call for help does not require a sophisticated words or a well-reasoned defense, just a desperate cry for help. Like a loving parent, God responds to comfort and guide us by sending people in our lives to help us through our trials and tribulations. May we pray for the courage and strength to trust God when a real scare comes!!
Together through prayer and service,
