Being a Dominican Sister is a source of great blessings and much happiness for me. This life has offered a wide variety of ministry experiences with many wonderful people in schools, parishes and dioceses. I am deeply grateful for the support and encouragement of my family, Sisters and friends.
Sister Margaret is a teaching and preaching presence with children, teens, and women at St. Ignatius Mission Parish on the Flathead Indian Reservation where she serves as pastoral assistant and director of religious education. She is in her 10th year living and working in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Helena in Montana.
When not ministering at the mission on official business, she assists families, helping with Salish Kootenai funerals that last two or three days, handing out prayer beads to those who wish to pray the rosary, and sharing their strong faith during conversations with tribal members.
