Who We Are
In the last one hundred years, St. Margaret’s has evolved from the dream of a small group of friends into a year-round community of worshipers and a vital contributor to the greater Belfast community. The church participates in a variety of outreach programs, both local and international. St. Margaret’s contributes both financially and in kind to the support of St. Etienne, an Episcopal church and school in Limonade, Haiti, and members of the two congregations have exchanged visits. Locally, St. Margaret’s is a member of both the Waldo County Food Cupboard and the Interfaith Fuel Fund, ecumenical programs sponsored by a number of area churches. Additional outreach efforts include financial support for, and member involvement in, organizations such as Senior Spectrum, Waldo County Hospice, The Game Loft and the Committee for Restorative Justice. In 2007, St. Margaret’s completed an extensive renovation and expansion of its parish house. The additional space created allows for both expanded church programs and additional outreach opportunities. Free lunch for families and children has been offered several times a week during the summer and, during the school year, the church has hosted a once-a-week “Toddlers Play Date” designed to help children make new friends as well as to offer support to parents and caregivers. The parish house is also used for meetings by a variety of community groups.
