RE:                  Sr. Theresa Tenbusch

Dear Parish Family.

Our dear friend and teacher, Sr. Theresa Tenbusch passed on this morning.  She will be dearly missed.  Her funeral will be celebrated at the IHM motherhouse in Monroe and attendance is very restricted.  However, the funeral mass live stream can be viewed at the following link.  A memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. Margaret of Scotland Church at some time in the future.  Please pray for Sr. Theresa and her family during this very difficult time.

Also, the live stream will be shown in church following morning Mass on Wednesday, August 12.

Following the recent directives from the Archdiocese, churches can be open for private prayer.  St. Margaret will be open from 12 noon to 3:00 pm from Monday through Friday, beginning Monday, May 4, 2020.  Use the bell tower entrance.

We ask that those who are entering wear a mask and leave a paper on your seat as you depart.  This will facilitate daily cleaning.  Please observe safe distancing (6 feet).

Also, please confine your visit to the church.  Do not enter the office area or other parts of the building.  If people observe these guidelines we can maintain a place for people to pray privately.  If not, we will have to close until further notice.

Thanks for your cooperation.
