In-Person Worship
The Reopening Committee and the vestry have been working hard to devise a plan to safely allow for in person worship to resume, following the guidance of both the diocese and the State of New Jersey. On Sunday March 21, we would like to try out this plan and the various protocols that have been put in place by inviting some of you to come to church for Sunday's Mass. 

Please understand, that in order to be admitted inside the church, YOU MUST HAVE A RESERVATION. Apologies for all caps, but it is imperative that you understand that those without a reservation can not be admitted into the church, due to social distancing requirements which have limited our seating capacity.

In order to make a reservation, please visit:

March Madness Squares
Just like our Super Bowl Squares, we will also be doing NCAA March Madness Squares as a small fundraiser for St. Martin's. The final game won't be played until April 5th. Here is the link to the spreadsheet:

St. Martin’s School Contributes to Church Outreach
School students recently spent time putting together Easter baskets which will be distributed to children by S.H.I.P. and the Board of Education in Bound Brook in time for Easter. All basket items were donated by the students’ families and brought into school by the children.
Keeper of the Light
There is a light at St. Martin's that never goes out. We call it the "Sanctuary Light". It reminds us of the presence of Christ who is with us always. During this time when we are not able to be in our building, members of the parish have been taking turns caring for the light in their own home and then passing it on to another member for the next week, until we can all be together again in the church building. If you would like to be the "Keeper of the Light" for a week, email Philip with the subject "Candle" at philip.muniz@gmail.com.
