Godly Play Baptism


Children and Family Ministries is a vital part of life at St. Martin’s, overseeing a wide variety of activities from baptisms and our annual Blessing of the Animals to children's Lenten retreats and St. Nicholas celebrations. Coordinated by Michelle McDonnell -- a St. Martin’s parishioner and mother to three preschool and elementary-age children -- Children and Family Ministries has responsibility for activities for children from infancy through fifth grade, including Christian formation classes and Chapel services held during the 10:30 a.m. service. Pictured here, a volunteer leads a Godly Play lesson on baptism in St. Anne's Room, the Godly Play Chapel in The Commons.
