St. Margaret Mary School

The mission church of St. Margaret Mary School in Leander, Texas was founded in 1942 by priests of the Holy Cross Order to serve the small group of Catholics living in the Leander, Cedar Park, Liberty Hill and Jollyville areas.
The people had petitioned the Holy Cross priests to build a church for them in their area.
So eager were they to have a church, despite their small numbers and poor finances, that they built a church sanctuary mostly by themselves at Hwy 183 in Leander.
The mission and the area it served grew slow'ly through the years and was served by a number of Holy Cross and diocesan priests - first as a mission of St. Helen's in Georgetown and later as a mission of St. William's in Round Rock and then St. Thomas More of Austin.
St. Margaret Mary is a warm and diverse family unified by our Roman Catholic faith through the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Like the Apostles, we teach and proclaim the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ and through our ministries we serve the needs of the community in Sacrament, Word, and Deed.
