Children, Youth, and Family Overview

I said, “Ah, Lord God! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a child.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a child.’ See, today I appoint you over nations and over kingdoms, to build and to plant.”
~ Jeremiah 1: 4, 7, 10

Children and youth are integral to parish life at St. Martin’s. Our children nourish our communal faith through their sense of wonder and awe, and challenge us to grow through their inquisitiveness and even doubt. We in turn strive to nourish their faith by welcoming them into worship, inviting them into leadership roles, and providing them with formation opportunities rich in biblical storytelling, spiritual exploration, liturgical instruction, and real-life integration.

We also offer opportunities for parents and caregivers to be nourished, alongside and separately from their children!
