A Note From the Executive Director

Photo of Judith H. Reilly, Executive Director

Dear friends,

I hope that this note finds you and your loved ones well. Join us at the house for worship service Wednesdays at noon. Lunch follows, and we recommend a $10 donation, but please don’t let that stop you from coming.  All are welcome here!

The house is filled with events and activities that will bring you peace, build community, and help you on your faith journey. We are always looking for more people to facilitate programming.  If you have an idea for an event, please give me a call at (315) 724-2324 or email me at jreilly@stmargaretshouseny.org.

We know that COVID-19 is still active in our area, and around the world. We are open and welcome you to come and find respite here. It’s still necessary to sign-in, wear your mask, have your temperature taken at the door, and to keep your distance while here at the house. But please do come. There’s a special calmness here that is like none other.

If you don’t yet receive our monthly newsletters, please sign up to do so. There’s a pop-up box when you get on the website, all you have to do is enter your email there and it will be delivered right to you each month. Our monthly dinners will continue to be available as take-outs and as dine-in.  We invite you and your friends to come and share in the community that we have all so greatly missed.

I hope to see you soon!

All the best,

Judith H. Reilly

Executive Director


When the house first opened, it served as a rest home for convalescent women and those in need of rest, care, quiet, and spiritual help. During the time that the Sisters were in residence, they would welcome those of all faiths who wished to come for quiet hours, for retreats, or just to make a visit. The beautiful grounds were always filled with flowers, gardens, and grape vines.
