Welcome to St. Margaret Mary Parish!

Thank you for visiting our website! St. Margaret Mary is a Roman Catholic Parish located in Naperville, Illinois, right on the border of Naperville and Lisle. Please take a few moments to explore the site and see a bit of the richness of life and faith at our parish.

We are known for the many opportunities we provide to learn about our faith and to become more faithful followers of Christ. Please come and experience our prayerful celebrations of the Mass, our thoughtful and challenging educational activities for all ages, and our many opportunities to serve our community.

We especially welcome newcomers to our local area, and those curious about the Catholic faith. We hope our parish can give you nourishment for your personal journey, and can help you to grow in love for God and for all God’s people.

Since our founding over 40 years ago, St. Margaret Mary has been known as the parish with heart.

Upcoming Events

We are a Mission-Focused Parish

We believe our parish exists because of God’s initiative, not ours. It is God who has called the parish into being and it is the mission of our parish to discern and to participate in God’s mission for us.

We believe our parish does not create its own vision of the future, but must discern and participate in God’s vision. Because of this we are called to regularly reflect on our calling in order to meet the changing historical and social circumstances that confront us.

We believe that our discerned calling is central to the life and mission our parish and must be ongoing and continuous if the parish is to be faithful and effective in ministry and mission. We accomplish this work with our three-year communal discernment cycle.

Our Parish Mission Statement

As a worshipping Roman Catholic parish family we are guided by a collegial partnership of laity, pastor, and ministerial staff. Together we seek to foster spiritual growth through the active practice of Christianity. By the sharing of our God-given talents and resources with all God’s people we strive for peace and justice as the “Parish with Heart.”
