Welcome to the Oakland Apostolate of the Intstitute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church (SMM) in Oakland. We are blessed to have the Institute at our parish. For Mass schedules and upcoming events, please see below. To view photos of SMM parish life and events, please click on the Gallery tab.

Please visit our Groups page to view SMM activities. Sursum Corda is the Institute's young adults group at SMM and meets every 2nd Thursday of the month. Parents, if your son(s) is interested in becoming an altar server, please visit our Altar Server's Guild page. It is an honor to serve God in this special way.  Our Scholas are looking for singers dedicated to praising God through the Gregorian chant. The St. Joseph Men's Group meets regularly to pray the rosary, for fellowship, and helping with SMM activities.

Please check back frequently for Mass and event updates.


  • For the comfort and peace of mind of our fellow parishioners, we encourage everyone to follow Alameda County health and masking guidelines. During this cold and flu season and the heightened incidence of Covid, please avoid attending church and other gatherings if you are sick or unwell.
