Our Mission & Values

Our Mission

To be an authentically catholic and inclusive community of faith, where the Gospel of Love, the Eucharist, and service to others are central to all that we pray, all that we share, and all that we do.

Saint Martin’s welcomes each person to celebrate who they are in the image of God: regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, or other man-made differences.  

We welcome you to our community of faith and, most especially, to Jesus' Table, without exception. Experience the joy, peace, and healing that only comes through Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

Our Values

Praying Together

We, at Saint Martin’s, are a:

People of Prayer

Through the offering of Masses, other liturgies, public devotions, and faith sharing, we recognize that prayer is the anchor for keeping God at the center of our lives.

People of Mercy, Justice, and Service

We seek to “Do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8). Through our words and our actions, we strive to serve our families, our church, and our community with generosity and compassion.  We aim to collaborate, through ecumenical efforts, to advocate for peace, justice, and equality.

 

People of Celebration

 

In our walk of faith as a community, there are many opportunities to celebrate – feast days, especially our own patron, St. Martin of Tours on November 11th, as well as prayer, peace, and justice events in which we gather in unity and as followers of Christ to mark those occasions.
