During May, the Outreach committee helps the Food Bank of Somerset County on Saturday mornings by giving food to those who need it. The Outreach Committee was recently informed of changes to the Food Bank schedule. Firstly, they only give out food on the 1st and 3rd Saturday in a month. That means we need more people for this Saturday and the 20th. They no longer need a driver for the van. If you can come this Saturday or on the 20th instead of the 13th and 27th, please come to hand out food.

Tonight's Pride Picnic Hosted by the Somerset County LGBTQ+ Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is holding its annual LGBTQ+ Picnic on May 11th from 5:30-7:30 pm at Duke Island Park. We want to get a group of parishioners together to attend. We will be having pizza and drinks. St. Martin's Pride T-shirts will be available at the event.

Welcome Brunch

Thanks to the Evangelism and Fellowship Committees and everyone who had a hand in the Newcomers Welcome Brunch. What a wonderful event! There was such a loving and welcoming energy present. Thank you all for taking time out of your busy days to meet some of our 15 newcomers.

Eagle Scout

Congratulations to Charlotte Slye on earning the rank of Eagle Scout. Your St. Martin's family is proud of your achievement.

Death in the St. Martin's Family

With hope in the Resurrection to Eternal Life in Jesus Christ, we announce the passing of Sadie Diliddo, one of the founding members of St. Martin's. Her memorial service will be at St Martin's in the near future. Details will be forthcoming.

May her soul and the souls of all the departed rest in peace, and may Light perpetual shine upon them.

Spring has Sprung

Don't forget to "attend" to the area you signed up to weed on the property.

Graduating Seniors

If you have a graduating senior this year, please send us your information. We want to celebrate their accomplishments.

Trip Opportunity

Juanita and her Retirees' Club may host a trip to the Sight and Sound Theater to see The Christmas Story in November or early December. It would be a Tuesday or a Thursday. The cost would be $180 per person which would include the bus (from the Church) lunch at the Shady Maple and the show. The tickets might be a few dollars less depending on how many people attend as the main cost is the bus. The bus would be a 56-passenger bus equipped with a bathroom facility. We would leave the Church parking lot around 8 am. Whether we go or not will depend on the level of interest. If you think you might be interested, please e-mail Juanita at

St. Martin's has a composting bin at the back of the parking lot, near the garden that Rob Vernon tends. If you would like to compost but don't have a compost bin, please consider using our bin.
