Saint Margaret of Cortona Parish Events:
Flower Donations for the Altar: During the months of July and August, Flower Shop flowers will not be delivered bi-monthly because of the often extreme heat in the church. Parishioners who would like to donate flowers from their own gardens at home are welcome to do so and parishioners who would like to make a monetary donation for flowers to memorialize deceased loved ones, honor living family members and friends, celebrate an anniversary or birthday for a specific Sunday may contact Linda Vaughn at 887-2490 to arrange this. Vases can/will be provided.
Everybody Needs Some TLC Sometime … . St. Margaret’s is no different. The landscaping beds around the church and rectory are in need of some loving care. If you have some time to devote to improving the outside appearance of our property by weeding, trimming and mulching or if your employer sponsors a Community Service Day contact Linda Vaughn 887-2490.
