Service Ministries


Aid For Friends

This ministry involves our parishioners with making meals for the homebound not only in our parish, but throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.  The volunteers meet the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00PM in the Parish Life Center to prepare the meals together. All are welcome to join us.


Cemetery Ministry

St. Martin’s Parish has a cemetery that is located behind the New Hope Borough buildings and the police station in New Hope. Semi-annually the members of our Cemetery Care Ministry clean up the grounds of the cemetery of any old flowers, arrangements, sprays and displays. If you are interested in being a part of this ministry, please contact the parish office.


Food Bank

Delaware Valley Food Bank located in Lambertville serves the area of New Hope and Lambertville. St. Martin of Tours Parish, under the direction of St. Martin’s Cloak Ministry, takes up two food collections each year, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. We also have containers in our Gathering Area for weekly donations to the food bank. If you are interested in supporting this food bank, please feel free to drop off non-perishable items in the containers in the Gathering Area or participate in the semi-annual food collection. 



This ministry involves our parishioners in the visiting of residents at the Pediatric Specialty Car Facility located in Point Pleasant, PA. There are 52 residents ranging from infants to 21 years of age with varying medical needs. 72% of those who reside at the facility have no family support. It is with those individuals that we wish to spend time. We are looking for people willing to share their time, read and interact with the babies and children

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.
