We hope you will join us on Friday, July 19, 2019, for Holy Eucharist at 11:00 am as we celebrate St. Margaret’s Day.

Our 2019 St. Margaret’s Day appeal is an urgent call for donations to help furnish St. Marina’s Guesthouse. This is an important initiative for us as it is a way for us to welcome ALL guests, mobile or not to spend time at the convent on our now fully accessible first floor. Funds will be used for beds, bedding and chairs for the bedrooms, furniture for the meeting room, dining room, and new pots and pans for the kitchen. Please join us in putting the finishing touches on St. Marina’s that it may once again be a welcoming haven to all those seeking rest, refreshment, and renewal. If you’d like to support us now, you can text the word ‘give’ to: (978) 948-4101 to text a secure donation. Or you can donate online at: http://bit.ly/SSMgiving

We’re pleased to say the renovation of St. Marina’s Guesthouse is actually nearing completion and your donations will help us prepare it for late summer occupancy. This “old house” has been transformed for 21st-century use while still maintaining its original charm. The entire first floor is handicapped accessible; a renewed layout enhances functionality, and the building is now energy-efficient.

Our celebration is on a Friday again this year even though the actual date of our Patronal Festival is Saturday. The Duxbury Music Festival will be on the Town Green adjacent to St. Margaret’s Chapel on the weekend of July 20-21 and to have both events simultaneously would cause problems with traffic and parking. We know that there will be those who cannot come on a weekday and so we wanted to let you know that we will celebrate Holy Cross Day, the founding of the American House, on Saturday, September 14th.

Thank you for your support. We hope you will join us in person or in prayer.
