"Hi I’m Peyton, and I’m so excited to meet every single one of you and serve as your new Youth Minister! I was born and raised in Mobile, AL, but I’ve spent the last few years post-grad (Auburn University) as a Youth Minister in Richmond, VA and then as a missionary with The Culture Project International on the Pittsburgh, PA team. This past year, I worked for a local public relations company representing the Central Florida wedding industry, and I got married about 3 months ago! My husband also works in ministry at Bishop Moore, and we are so excited to see where The Holy Spirit leads us both on these ministry avenues He has invited us into within our Vocation. Please reach out over email or phone, come by the office, or catch me at a Mass and say hi so I can get to know you and your families. I can’t wait to work with you! Stay tuned for upcoming events and more info on Flocknote, and thank you for welcoming me into your community here at St. Margaret Mary:)!"

Adult Faith Formation
“My husband, A.J. and I have been parishioners at SMM for 31 years. It has been a blessing to be able to serve our church and school in a variety of ways over the years as a First Communion catechist, Eucharistic Minister, elected Pastoral Council member, UNITAS facilitator, RCIA sponsor, and Confirmation catechist. In 2019, I began a journey to achieve a personal goal of earning a Masters degree. Through a series of events, I now know were guided by the Holy Spirit, I chose Theology as my area of study. In May of 2021, I graduated with my Masters of Arts in Theology from Ave Maria University. I recently retired from a 34-year career with SunTrust, now Truist and I am excited to begin this new chapter in my life as the Director of Adult Faith Formation here at St. Margaret Mary. I am looking forward to all of the ways that God will be at work in our lives and in our parish as together we continue to grow in our faith, our relationship with each other, and the ultimate joy of growing closer to God. “
