Welcome to The Parish of St. Marguerite Bourgoeys
We were established as a parish on June 9, 2013 and chose St. Marguerite Bourgeoys to be our Patron Saint. October 19, 2014 our building was officially named St. Marguerite Bourgeoys.
We chose her because, just as she developed new ways of responding to the changing pastoral needs of her time, we now find ourselves in a similar situation. We also chose her because of the strong historical links to the Diocese of Antigonish and her religious family of Congregation of Notre Dame.
The specific needs which led to the formation of our parish were the dwindling number of priests and parishioners and the rising costs of maintaining multiple structures. After the process of lengthy discernment the four parishes — Saint Anthony Daniel – Alexander St, Saint Joseph – Cabot St, Immaculate Heart – Mira Road and Sacred Heart – George St — became one with the new parish of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys.
