Thank You to our Green Thumbs

St. Margaret Mary

Many thanks to the dedicated group of volunteers - our “Green Thumbs” group - who keep our parish grounds looking beautiful this summer. On many hot summer days you will see them working hard to add color and beauty to our grounds. Their efforts help create a welcoming environment to all who visit and use our parish facilities.

The Green Thumbs are looking for a few good men and women, who enjoy gardening, who will trim, weed, and water the flower beds throughout the summer. Just pick your time and day! Do it with a group or alone - whatever you prefer. Please contact Deacon Terry Taylor at the Parish Office - 630-369-0777.
