The Christmas Eve Nativity Pageant has become a great tradition here at St. Martin’s and many people look forward to seeing our parish children present this Nativity Scene.

As in past years, the Nativity Scene will be performed at the 4:00 PM Mass on Christmas Eve.  If you give your child permission to participate in this beautiful opportunity, there are three things that I ask you to commit to:


  1. Your child has to be present for three practices:

  • Sunday, December 15th from 12:15 to 1:30 PM

  • Sunday, December 22nd from 9:45 to 10:45 AM

  • Christmas Eve, December 24th from 2:30 until the end of the 4:00 PM Mass


2. Complete the form at the bottom of this page by December 8th.  This is important because the first rehearsal is the following Sunday, December 15th.


3. We are in need of some parents to cue the children and to help with their costumes. For families participating for the first time, we have some costumes and accessories.  But you may need to supply some items as well.  Most often what we need is garland, sweatpants, and sweatshirts.  Once we have established the various roles, we can better tell you what will be needed, but it will be very simple.

The children will be told at the first practice what their roles in the program will be.  If anyone has any costumes from years past, especially hoods that the cows, sheep, and goats wore, please bring them with you.

We are all looking forward to a beautiful presentation of the Birth of Jesus, our Savior.

St. Martin of Tours is committed to equipping young people for a lifelong journey of faith. We support and encourage the goals of the student to affirm their Baptism and take personal responsibility for their faith going forward. We take seriously our commitment to provide the student with proper instruction and prepare the student for the opportunity to make that choice. To achieve this goal, we will provide the students with opportunities to obtain the knowledge and skills that they can use to achieve wisdom for living their Catholic Faith.




The Sacramental PREP Program includes grades 2 and 7, otherwise known as 2nd Grade Sacramental PREP and Confirmation PREP.


When you register your child for second grade PREP, they are automatically enrolled in 2nd Grade Sacramental PREP. The 2nd Grade Sacramental PREP Program is a home-based program along with an Enrichment Program. The Enrichment program will consist of six sessions, of which families need to attend four.


The Confirmation PREP Program is held during the school year entirely in a classroom setting. 


Sacramental PREP begins with the Enrollment Mass in September. The Enrollment Mass is the start of both the 2nd-grade Sacramental PREP course, which prepares students to receive First Penance and First Eucharist and Confirmation PREP.


Both of the sacramental PREP programs are outlined in full detail in their respective handbooks.
