Welcome to St. Margaret of Scotland
On behalf of all the parishioners of St. Margaret of Scotland Parish it is with a grateful heart that I welcome you to our home on the internet. Please feel welcome to browse the pages of our website and learn more about the many activities and events that we are currently enjoying in our parish.
Not long after I arrived as pastor, I began to take walks in Griffin Park across from the firehouse. I noticed two bits of graffiti etched in the sidewalk. They read, “Jesus is Lord” and “Jesus is Lord of Foley and Alabama.” I knew I was in a good place. I began to call Foley “Holy Foley.” If Foley is holy it is because Jesus is alive here. When we share the life of Jesus we ourselves share in the holiness of God. As often as we receive Holy Communion the loving Jesus is present. As often as we celebrate the sacrament of penance and reconciliation the forgiving Jesus is present. And when the anointing of the sick is celebrated the healing Jesus is present.
Our Catholic life together in our parish celebrates our Lord’s presence in a myriad of ways. And for this we are grateful. Please consult our Mass schedule and visit us. With the schedule you will also find directions to the church.
Very Rev. Paul G. Zoghby
