Pet Blessing

Our pets are not just companions but also friends, confidants and even in some cases life-savers. Every October St. Martin's recognizes this through a Pet Blessing for our furry, scaled, or other animal friends. This includes dogs, cats, bunnies, hamsters, spiders, snakes and any other pet you would like to have blessed. We offer the blessing once again on October 7th in the Sanctuary at our 10am Eucharist.

The door to Strauss-Betker Hall is handicap accessible. All bathrooms are not only handicap accessible but large enough to turn a wheelchair around within. There is a wheelchair lift to the sanctuary that contains handicap accessible seating in the center with chairs, spaces for wheelchairs and a moveable baptismal font if needed to provide full access. if you have any questions about handicap accessibility, please feel free to contact Amanda Vandervort.
