All Welcome!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St. Margaret’s Ecumenical & Retreat Center throughout the year, and especially now when the winter is in full-swing, and the hustle and bustle of the holidays is over. Please come! Come and sit, relax, pray, read, take part in one or more of our events or activities; come for Holy Eucharist service on Wednesdays.

Maybe you’d like to join us for one of our groups. We have It Takes a Village, we have the Grief Group, and Friends of Emmaus. New folks are always welcomed to join us in any of these; we’d love to have you! In this issue of our newsletter, you’

ll also see that we have a couple of work days to help spiff up St. Margaret’s. One day is specifically aimed at the library – we could really use your hands that day. Diane, our librarian, works really hard but there’s just so much one person can do. Let’s give her a hand! As always, it makes planning easiest if you’d please give a call or email to sign up for all of the events and activities.

I’ll part with wishing you Enough. This poem always touches my heart, and I hope that it does yours as well.

Be well,
Judith H. Reilly

I Wish You Enough by Bob Perks
I wish you enough sun
to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain
to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness
to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that
the smallest joys in life
appear much bigger
I wish you enough gain
to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss
to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough “Hellos” to get you
through the final “Goodbye.”
