"People Ministering to People"
When our parish decided to relocate the church in the early 1950's and a new church was about to be built, people asked why we were building it "way out there." However, in the intervening years, the former "Valley of the Heart's Delight" grew from an agricultural area to what is now known as "Silicon Valley."
Our church is currently located next to the intersection of two freeways (280 and 880) and major shopping centers. Being located in the heart of busy Silicon Valley is both a blessing and a challenge.
St. Martin's Parish is a very welcoming community which endeavors to "see Christ in one another and be Christ to one another." The parish offers many opportunities to be involved in a wide variety of ministries, outreach and social activities. Please explore our website for more information.
