Can you help us?

In 2020 we lost approximately a third of our income due to the absence of visitors and wedding bookings. Our costs changed very little. Members of St. Martin's made significant efforts to help overcome that shortfall, but we are still facing not being able to pay our bills in the coming year. Would you consider a donation to help us in our mission of sharing God's love and our responsibility for the costly upkeep of our building.
