Over the past few years, St. Margaret’s Church Christian formation needs were growing in attendance and in the number/size of classrooms desired. The removal of our temporary classrooms also created more shortage of classroom space. In 2014, we began a capital campaign to raise funds for a new formation building. The building was completed in September 2015.
