  Saint Margaret's Episcopal Church, Palm Desert
by atufft

Saint Margaret's Episcopal Church where President Gerald Ford's family and community funeral occured is located in Palm Desert on Hwy 74. This was his place of worship in the last years of his life. Immediately next door is the Palm Desert Community Presbyterian Church where President Eisenhower attended regularly. These are large churches with substantial numbers of wealthy members, and so these churches are able to have far reaching ministries all over the world. Don't expect ceremonies here to be overly drab or ritualistic. The membership emphasizes the informal and uplifting spiritual gatherings helpful for aging folks within a retirement community such as Palm Desert.

Directions: At El Paseo, take Hwy 74 up the hill toward the living desert. See links below.
