Margaret is a member of the Sisters of St. Dominic, Amityville, NY. She served on her Congregation’s leadership team from 2001-2007, and during this time also served on the national board of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious as chair of Region 2 (New York State).

Margaret draws great inspiration from these words of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, which she believes support us as we each and all engage the reality of impasse in our lives:
“Above all, trust in the slow work of God…..Let God lead you, And accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense, And incomplete.”
