On Oct. 1, 1905, about 180 people gathered for the consecration of Bel Air's St. Margaret Church, a modest Gothic-style structure. A century later, the Catholic church on Hickory Avenue is perhaps the greatest success story in the region, having grown into the largest parish in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, with about 18,000 members, 40 employees and an annual budget of $3 million. In the intervening 100 years, the church underwent several expansions, navigated the turbulence accompanying the reforms of the Second Vatican Council in the early 1960s and weathered a nine-month shutdown to remove asbestos.
