My first encounter with St. Margaret Mary was meeting 8th graders and their parents as they visited the emergency shelter where I worked; as part of their Confirmation preparation, 8th graders explore the needs and opportunities for service in the community. This “Urban Plunge” is one of many faith formation pieces that SMMA offers to prepare students to live out their lives as the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus.
Throughout the last 20 years, all six of our children attended (one still there!) SMMA where they received an education that prepared them for academic success. SMMA offers excellence in math, science, and language skills; the innovation lab and coding class integrate cutting edge technology to meet the changing needs of our students.
Our kids appreciated being challenged by their teachers to become their best possible selves; they especially enjoyed the regular visits from our priests who genuinely want each of the students to experience the true joy that being a Catholic brings.
Our parish is blessed with an adoration chapel with volunteers around the clock, 24/7. I truly believe that this perpetual adoration brings showers of blessings down on our students, teachers, staff, and the entire parish.
Our youngest is an SMMA student today, and we are blessed to have her learning and growing in the SMMA community. I highly recommend SMMA for parents who desire an excellent, Catholic education where their children are truly cared for, valued, and respected.
