The Parish Council is a representative group of parishioners who prayerfully discuss the needs of the parish community. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month. The Parish Council serves as a catalyst by which the people of St. Martin of Tours share in their common baptismal call to proclaim the Gospel, celebrate the liturgy, pray, serve the people of God, and build community.
Our PSR classes are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:45 p.m. - 8:00 o.m. at St. Andrew Church (309 Hoffmeister Ave., St. Louis, MO 63125). Our PSR is designed for children from K-8th Grade who attend public schools. Our PSR systematically and intentionally, within an age-appropriate and family sensitive curriculum, supports the right of every Baptized person to a religious education. Our PSR has a goal, a fully expressed Sacramental life, a satisfying prayer life, and a life integrated with the moral teachings and doctrines of the Catholic Church.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults helps non-baptized persons, those baptized in another Christian Tradition, or those baptized as Catholic, but not raised as Catholic. The process helps them better understand the Catholic Faith in preparing to enter the Catholic Church. It is a time to listen to God, to each other, and to the wisdom of the tradition of the Catholic Church. Sessions are scheduled year-round.
