Welcome . . .

Fr. Daniel BedelSt. 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!

Reflections from Deacon Mike . . . Our Words  

Deacon Mike StratmanI read about a speech study done to a child's first 3 years of life.  They recorded over 200,000 hours (WOW!) of audio and video footage to learn how humans acquire language.  After collecting and editing the recordings they were able to hear baby sounds like "gaga" evolve to words like "water".

If someone wanted to conduct a research project at your home, would you participate if you knew that your every syllable would be recorded and analyzed?  What would the study reveal?  Some people claim that foolish people express their own opinions instead of trying to listen and understand what others have to say.  Does this characterize us?  Do we sometimes provoke fights with our words or speak impulsively by trying to think of an answer before listening to the matter itself?  I know I am guilty at times!

We all need to become students of our speech.  Our words have the power to build up or tear down. With God's help we can identify and transform our destructive words into a dialogue of comfort.  This week, use 'OUR WORDS'  to build up the kingdom of God with encouragement and compassion for all!!  

Together through prayer and service, 

Deacon Mike

Religious Education - KidStuff!

Happy summer! It time to register for this fall's Religious Education Program - KidStuff!

You want the best for your child!  Therefore, as they are developing, give them the essentials . . .

  • They need to know there is a God in this secular world;

  • They need to need to know God loves them and cares for them, since they can’t take care of themselves;

  • They need to experience the joy of answered prayer; and          

  • They need to know what God is like through getting to know Jesus.

Feeling God’s presence in our lives is essential at every age, because it is together with our peers that we form our worldview, deepen our knowledge of God and develop a greater love for Jesus and the community He gives us.

Please give your child the gift of KidStuff, starting with a great breakfast on Sunday, August 27 at 9:30 am in the Legacy Room.

We will also offer opportunities for you as a family to grow stronger as a Catholic Family through Family Prayer Opportunities.

We have great catechists this year, looking forward to sharing their faith, hope and love with your children, and to offer a faith filled worldview to counter the secular one which surrounds them.

Garage SaleTime to clean out those closets, basements & garages. We are currently accepting items for our annual Labor Day Garage Sale. All items should be placed in the hallway on the first floor of the Parish Center. Furniture can be delivered to the garage.

Bishop Thompson Appointed Archbishop of Indianapolis

Archbishop - DesignateOn June 13, 2017, Pope Francis appointed Bishop Charles C. Thompson as Archbishop - Designate of Indianapolis.  His Installation Mass is scheduled for Friday, 28 July 2017, when he will also receive the Pallium, the insignia of his role as Metropolitan of the Indianapolis Province. 

As we prepare for Archbishop-Designate Thompson's installation we ask that you recite this prayer at every reasonable opportunity, especially until June 23rd when an additional prayer will be suggested. Four special prayers leading up to the installation will be provided - plus a novena of brief prayers in final preparation for receiving with joy our new shepherd.

We welcome Archbishop - Designate Thompson to our community and the Archdioces!
