WELCOME TO OUR PARISH

Living, Loving ,Vibrant & Eucharistic

St. Marguerite d’ Youville Parish is located in a very quiet and scenic area of the Northern side of Lawrenceville, Georgia. The parishioners affectionately call it their “Second Home”. We are a parish that is welcoming, friendly, sociable and have dedicated members. The parish has over 600 registered households. The main sanctuary can seat over 550 people. We have 3 priests and 2 deacons to serve our community. We are a 25 years old parish. The pastoral care of this parish is provided by the Fransalian Fathers (Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales-MSFS) of the USA Vice Province.

Anyone who drives around the St. Marguerite Church area will certainly experience an atmosphere of peace and silence within. Our church is an apt and appropriate place for prayer, meditation, reflection, contemplation and solitude. The parish has a chapel for perpetual adoration where the faithful can come and adore day and night. A beautiful Marian Garden for outside reflection; an altar for outdoor Mass with Marian Grotto for praying rosary, rosary walks, and outdoor Stations of the Cross in St. Edward Garden between the church and the rectory. The parish has a large social hall where wedding receptions and other social activities can be held. Our parish has over 50 active ministries with a vibrant youth ministry. It is a home for the Polish Community around this area.

Fr. Tomy Joseph Puliyanampattayil, MSFS
Pastor

On behalf of the faithful, the clergy and the administrative staff, I would like to extend a hearty welcome to our parish. May the Lord continue to bless you and your loved ones through the intercession of St. Marguerite d’Youville, the Mother of Universal Charity and St. Francis de Sales, the Gentleman Saint.

Our new Archbishop Gregory Hartmayer, O.F.M. Conv., has indicated that the dispensation of required attendance at Sunday Mass has been replaced by a partial dispensation beginning May 22nd.  

While the general dispensation is removed, there are specific persons for whom the dispensation will, for the time being, still be applicable, as well as persons for whom there is no obligation in the first place according to the norms of canon law. One does not have an obligation to attend Mass on Sunday or a holy day of obligation in the following circumstances:

You are ill or you have a health condition that would be compromised if you were to contract a communicable illness (i.e., you have underlying conditions or are in a high-risk category). Please use the dispensation and do not attend Mass.

You are experiencing flu-like symptoms.

You have been exposed to someone who has tested positive or you have reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness.

You care for the sick, homebound, or infirm.

You are pregnant.

You are 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation of high-risk individuals).

You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered, you are infirm, your ride did not show up, the church was at capacity).

You have significant fear or anxiety of becoming ill by being at Mass.

Fr. Tomy is now implementing an allowance from the Archbishop for pastors to adapt a CDC-based lessening of COVID restrictions, namely, that those who have received both COVID vaccines have the discretion not to wear face masks at Mass.  Social distancing for those having received vaccines is also discretionary.  For those not having received vaccines, face masks must still be worn during Mass and when coming up for communion.

All non-liturgical Parish activities and gatherings continue to be suspended without Father Tomy's express permission.

- Please, we ask, Confession and Anointing of the Sick should be done only in genuine emergencies. Note that in circumstances where access to Confession is limited or unavailable, the Church does offer the provision of an Act of Perfect Contrition:

“Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution, it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, beloved above all things, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness (that which the penitent is at present able to express) and accompanied by votum confessionis, that is, by the firm resolution to have recourse, as soon as possible, to sacramental confession, obtains forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. CCC, no. 1452).” –Apostolic Penitentiary

Perfect contrition requires:

1. The love of God
2. The sincere desire for forgiveness
3. The ardent commitment to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as soon as possible, when available
