What began as a small mission church in 1932 has become a vital center for bringing God’s word, love, and grace to Martin County and beyond. Our parishioners from all over the region participate in over 50 active ministries that proclaim God’s love in word and action.

  • who follows Jesus Christ in caring for souls and directing them through the joys and sorrows of their spiritual journeys and healing those broken by life’s circumstances;
  • who inspires and educates with compelling preaching and teaching, who clearly relates the Word of God to our lives and grows our opportunities for spiritual formation;
  • who broadens our evangelism efforts and reaches out to those around us through outreach ministries that bring help to those living on the margins of society;
  • who recognizes the variety of talents in our community and who can raise leaders for the work at hand and to the greater glory of God;
  • and who is a good steward of our physical campus and our financial resources, has a record of success in fundraising and is comfortable asking people to increase their financial commitment to St. Mary’s.
