Dear Friends of Martina Center,

With an abundance of hope we ae moving forward with planning a year filled with programs here at Martina. We are well aware that circumstances beyond the control of any of us could cause those plans to be changed in an instant as we saw in March of this year.

Moving with an abundance of caution, we have been extremely blessed these past few months to have been able to re-open our doors to retreatants. While the groups are necessarily smaller and things like: food service, cleaning protocols and use of prayer spaces look different, our guests seem to have been comfortable and happy.

We regret that our wonderful Christmas Cabaret has been canceled for this year due to Covid-19. We will miss celebrating this joyful opening to the Christmas season with our Martina family. If you feel led to donate in the absence of this year’s event, we would be grateful to make those arrangements – thank you!.

Thank you for being part of our “family”. May our loving God bless you and enable you to continue to be God’s Light in this beautiful but troubled world.


Sr. Donna Smith, SHS
