Last year, St. Martin’s successfully raised more than $18 million dollars for the construction of a new Youth and Young Adult Center, a new Scout Hut and a new building entitled The Hope and Healing Center.


During a ceremonial groundbreaking on Sunday, April 10, the new Scout Hut and Youth and Young Adult Center was given in thanksgiving for President George Bush and Barbara Bush, members of St. Martin’s. At the groundbreaking, the parish celebrated these new and improved facilities, as well as The Hope and Healing Center, which will offer comprehensive ministries, seminars and support avenues to help build strong families and lives, both within and beyond the congregation.


Construction is scheduled to begin later this summer, with a projected completion date of the fall of 2012. To learn more about The Hope and Healing Center, please visit
