The mission statement of St. Martin of Tours states: “We are a community of disciples formed by the Word, who gather in Worship and bear Witness to Christ by ministering to all people.”

In order to help us break open and reflect upon our parish’s mission statement and how we can live it out not only at St. Martin of Tours but also in Silicon Valley, we have invited Father John Hurley, CPS to join us at the following weekend masses to help us:

January 18th/19th Baptism of Jesus: Our call to live out our Baptism
March 21st/22nd Man Born Blind: Worship: The Source and Summit
May 30th/31st Pentecost: Witness: Empowered by the Spirit

Following the Sunday morning Masses, please join Father Hurley for coffee and conversation.
