Welcome . . .

Fr. Dan 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!

Fr. Daniel Bedel

Reflections from Deacon Mike . . . Keep Praising God      

Deacon Mike StratmanLast summer, I walked into a hotel lobby in Vegas that featured the largest arrangement of fresh flowers I have ever seen. It was bursting with color, perfectly arranged and its fragrance was amazing. It stopped me in my tracks and I lingered for an hour to admire its beauty. It made me think that there is something about abundance that captures our hearts. Think of the inviting beauty of a bowl overflowing with colorful fruit, or a countertop covered with three or four pies ready for enjoyment after a bountiful Thanksgiving meal.

The joy of abundance reminds me of the generosity of God. He makes our cup overflow with grace, our talents, our treasures, our family and friends. Our God is abundantly good to us. As we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, don't be stressed out on your preparation of coming and going. Instead, be like Jesus and welcome all who enter your home and keep praising God for His many blessings. Because, there are many who are hungry and alone this day.

We pray, Thank you Lord for the reminder that you are far from being stingy, and You bless us with the good things of creation.  We thank you for Your presence among us and the comforts we received from Thy bounty from whom all blessings flow!  Amen!  

Together through prayer and service, 

Deacon Mike

Discernment Sessions Announced

The Office of Deacon Formation is beginning a period of inquiry and discernment for those interested in the Permanent Diaconate.  In the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, Deaconsformation for the permanent diaconate is a five year process beginning with the year of inquiry and discernment. This first year entails a series of monthly meetings, beginning in September and concluding in March, which are held in various areas of the archdiocese. These sessions are open to all those who wish to enter into discernment. Serious applicants are expected to attend all of the meetings. If they are married we ask that their wives also attend. Formal application packets will be distributed in January of the discernment year to those who have actively participated in the discernment process.  The applications will then be reviewed by a selection committee, and those who are selected to enter formation will begin the formal four year process in August 2018.

The first inquiry session will take place on Sunday, September 10, 2017, at St. Lawrence Parish in Indianapolis.  The topic will be the Diaconate as Vocation and will also discuss necessary qualifications and the four year formation process.
