You can now find some information about local parking for the Church here: http://www.stmargarets-church.co.uk/church-information/visit-us. This will hopefully help to ease the parking situation at weekend masses. Please send any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org or join the discussion in the forum: http://www.stmargarets-church.co.uk/forums/general-discussion/parking-st-margarets.

Although a majority vote has sadly been passed this week in the House of Commons of the British Parliament, to approve regulations for the creation of human embryos using genetic material from 2 maternal sources at the moment of artificial conception, this still has to go to the House of Lords at the end of this month for further approval.
We urge you to circulate to all your colleagues wherever they are based the link to the petition against this proposal.
The human embryo is (One of Us), and the arrogance of the UK to imagine that they should meddle so drastically with the germline of the human embryo is extraordinary.
On Sunday 1st February 2015, Pat Keane was presented with his Gold St Stephen's Medal in recognition of 50 years of service at the altar. Fr Christopher also presented Pat with a Papal Blessing for his dedication. This is the first Gold St Stephen's medal to be presented at St Margaret's, and it is well deserved.
