St. Martin’s believes that as society’s standards are changing, children need a stable set of values on which to base their judgments and decisions throughout their lives. St. Martin’s School partners with the parents of our students and our parish to help provide this foundation.
St. Martin’s welcomes children from all walks of life, regardless of race, creed, color, ethnic origin or gender. We would love to have you join the St. Martin’s family.
We were blessed on Saturday, October 3rd, with lovely weather and many animal friends at the annual Blessing of the Animals service. Fr. G. and Mr. David blessed dogs, cats, and a hamster, along with some stuffed animal friends, too!
