The Spirit Is on the Move at St. Margaret’s
St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, Plainview, N.Y., is an active member of the community of faith.
As part of its ongoing program of strengthening relationships with surrounding houses of worship, St. Margaret’s hosted an ecumenical All Saints’ Day service the evening of Nov. 1. Celebrating and worshiping together were clergy and parishioners from St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church, Plainview; St. Bede’s Episcopal Church, Syosset; Faith Lutheran Church, Syosset; and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Plainview. It was a rich experience as the four congregations honored one of the Church’s feast days and celebrated shared community. Names of the saints who have gone before us from the four parishes were read at the Prayers of the People.
Several members of St. Margaret’s enjoyed their recent visit to Little Portion Friary for the labyrinth walk, and responded to an invitation to visit St. Lawrence of Canterbury, Dix Hills, on Saturday, Nov. 9 for an Open House sponsored by the Third Order of the Society of St. Francis. On Nov. 26, members of St. Margaret’s will join the local community as it gives thanks together at an Interfaith Thanksgiving Service at 7:30 p.m. at the Plainview Jewish Center. On Sunday, Nov. 17, St. Margaret’s will offer another opportunity for community worship at 4 p.m. with a lovely Evensong Mass with music by its talented guitar group. Good News is radiating all around, and we invite you to join in – and bring a friend!

The Rev. Eric Olsen, Good Shepherd Lutheran; The Rev. Frederic Miller, St. Bede’s;
