Special Events

Worship with us on Sunday Nov 12 St. Martin’s Day at 10 a.m.

We honor our Veterans and are proud to follow the example of St. Martin who did his duty as a Roman soldier and showed compassion on a beggar by giving away half his uniform cloak before later becoming bishop of Tours in France. Come worship with us Sunday at 10 a.m. to honor St. Martin’s example and meet Bishop Michael Hanley.

Tuesday Feb 28:  5:30 p.m. Traditional Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
& Pancake Races hosted by St. Martin’s Men’s Group

Pancake Races have many categories, even Certificate of Participation, Most Flips, More Creative Flips, etc.   According to Wikipedia,

The most famous pancake race, at Olney in Buckinghamshire, has been held since 1445. The contestants, traditionally women, carry a frying pan and race over a 415-yard course to the finishing line. The rules are strict: contestants have to toss their pancake at both the start and the finish, as well as wear an apron and a scarf. Traditionally, when men want to participate, they must dress up as a housewife (usually an apron and a bandanna).  Here’s a picture from England.
