Community Outreach

 

Our Parishioners are pleased to support the Daily Bread program at the Cathedral. Members bring items of non-perishable food each week to be delivered to the Daily Bread program.

In March each year, we have a Loaves and Fishes outreach. Each member of our congregation is asked to bring a small bag of groceries each week. At the end of March, we will deliver the collected food items.  Thank you to everyone who donated this year.

Christmas 2017, St. Martin's is participating in the Reverse Advent Calendar.  Please read all the details in our Christmas newsletter.

 

At St. John's the Evangelist:  A team of four from St. Martin-in-the-Fields cook in the kitchen of St. John the Evangelist church downtown to support their Saturday night dinner program.  

 

Baby LayettesSt. Martin's is actively supporting the St. Paul's Social Services program by providing layette kits. A client of the Daily Bread Food Bank who is expecting a first child, can register to receive a kit which includes Baby Powder, Baby Oil, Baby Cream, Newborn Clothes, Blanket, Bibs, Socks, maybe Toys, Diapers (preferably newborn size) and lotion.

Brenda Larsen, who lives in the UK, is a real friend to St. Martin`s. Brenda, a talented knitter, heard about our layette plan and immediately presented us with these gorgeous knitted and stuffed soft dolls to add to what we can provide.
