With grateful hearts, we are pleased to announce that a commemorative archival print of our patron saint, St. Margaret Mary, has been commissioned for our 100th anniversary from artist and SMM parishioner, Maureen Beat.
A limited number of 11x14 archival prints of the original will be printed. 100 prints will be available at a cost of $100.00 each (plus tax).
“Knowing that the 100 year Anniversary of our parish was approaching in 2019, I was inspired to create a painting of St. Margaret Mary holding the Sacred Heart. I did preliminary sketches but St. Margaret Mary was looking straight ahead to the viewer and I forgot to put her halo on! After thinking about how she must have felt, I decided to have her eyes closed when holding the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Having minored in Art History, I recall studying the depictions from the Bible and the Saints – who expressed complete ecstasy when encountering Jesus. I truly felt moved by the Holy Spirit when I worked on the painting.” —Artist SMM parishioner Maureen Beat
