Total Transformation: Understanding Lenten Practices in Scripture

Every Lent the Church encourages us to intensify the threefold practice of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving in order to detach ourselves from the world and embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ with greater passion and commitment.  This coming Saturday evening, February 21, from 5:30 till 7:00 p.m., in Saint Martin’s parish hall, we’re happy to host Splendor of Truth Ministries founder, Dr. Nicholas Lebish, for a biblical, spiritual, and practical study of this threefold path to virtue and holiness.  Coffee and refreshments will be available.

Respect Life Mass


On January 22, 1973 our Supreme Court issued a decision that made abortion legal in our country. Because of that decision, over 1 million unborn children lose their lives to abortion each year. Please join Archbishop Joseph Kurtz and representatives from around the archdiocese at St. Martin of Tours on Sunday, January 18 at 3:00pm to celebrate the annual respect life memorial Mass. This year 42 white roses will be displayed to mark each year since the Roe v. Wade decision.
