Instruments of Peace: 40 days of Prayer & Fasting, May 25- July 15
Beginning on May 25th, the day after Pentecost, Saint Margaret's will undertake forty days of prayer and fasting, offering petitions to God for an end to violence and for His peace to reign supreme. All families of the parish are encouraged to sign up for one day out of the forty days to fast from sun up to sun down, and to commit to times of intentional prayer that day for God to turn the hearts of all who commit violence and to pray for peace. See sign up sheets in the narthex.

Come pray, and share together, as we study the book of Isaiah. How do we overcome the obstacles that bind us to feelings of defeat and despair?
