Weddings At St Martin’s

Portals

A portal is an opening into participating in the life of the St. Martin’s community. Worship, either on Sunday mornings or weekdays is a large portal into participation in the life of St. Martin’s. For those for whom Episcopal worship is presently a step too far, other portals invite you into association with activities that might interest you as a member of the neighborhood and the wider community that surrounds St. Martin’s.

  • Thrifty Goose (Thrift Shop) and Cloak Ministry.  The Thrifty Goose is a fabulous Aladdin’s Cave; a source for high-end and exotic previously owned clothing priced as steal deals. Click here to sign up for the occasional update from the Thrifty Goose. Visit the link above or on
  • Items that can’t be sold in the shop become part of the Cloak Ministry that provides clothing, footwear, and toiletry items for the homeless shelters in Providence. Both the goose and the cloak are symbols of St. Martin, monk and bishop of Tours, 397 A.D.
  • Women’s Spirituality Group meets once a month and is open not only to St. Martin’s members but women in the local community who might want to enjoy exploring themes particular to women and women’s spirituality, without necessarily being members of the congregation – contact Susan Allen.
  • St. Martin’s Men’s Community meets to eat, meet to grow, meet to serve through regular large group pizza and beer gatherings, a small monthly themed lunch group, small book and Op-Ed discussion groups, and service planning projects. The SMMC is open to men in the wider community who would like to find a space for cultivating friendships and finding a space for spiritual growth in solidarity with other men. Contact Mark Sutherland  to connect with this community.
  • The Knitting Ministry is a group which meets monthly to knit healing prayer shawls to be given to individuals at points of health crisis, reminding them that they are not alone – contact Natasha Lofgren.
  • Epiphany Soup Kitchen prepares and serves a weekly Saturday afternoon meal to people experiencing food insecurity – contact the office.
  • Thursday Meditation Hour meets from 5:30-6:30 and offers a portal into the experience of meditation and body-focused spiritual practice. No previous experience is necessary; neither do you have to be Episcopalian or even Christian as our approach draws wisdom from different traditions of meditation practice . For more information or to join the Meditation Hour, contact Mark Sutherland.
