Top prize for trivia night will be $200 for the winning table. We’ll also have fun games, such as “heads or tails” and “dead or alive.” The night will be hosted by our own resident trivia master and Vestry member, Jason Smith.

episcopaliansvoteSundays starting September 11th, 4:00-6:00 pm

Episcopalians can live out our call to care for our neighbors as ourselves by engaging in the public square. This November 8, our nation will head to the polls to decide a number of important elections, and there are many opportunities for Episcopalians to engage in this electoral process.

Father Jay and Father Jon are bringing this national conversation local with weekly discussions right here at St. Martin’s on Sunday evenings from 4-6 pm, starting September 11th.

“If we who are Christians participate in the political process and in the public discourse as we are called to do — the New Testament tells us that we are to participate in the life of the polis, in the life of our society — the principle on which Christians must vote is the principle, Does this look like love of neighbor?”         – Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, March 2016

a-womans-crusadeThe Book Club meets on Tuesday, October 25th from 7:00-8:30 pm in Packwood Library. We will discuss A Woman’s Crusade: Alice Paul and the Battle for the Ballot by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik. Come join the discussion. Newcomers are always welcome!

About the book:

Alice Paul began her life as a studious girl from a strict Quaker family in New Jersey. In 1907, a scholarship took her to England, where she developed a passionate devotion to the suffrage movement. Upon her return to the United States, Alice became the leader of the militant wing of the American suffrage movement. Calling themselves “Silent Sentinels,” she and her followers were the first protestors to picket the White House.   Arrested and jailed, they went on hunger strikes and were force-fed and brutalized. Years before Gandhi’s campaign of nonviolent resistance, and decades before civil rights demonstrations, Alice Paul practiced peaceful civil disobedience in the pursuit of equal rights for women.

With her daring and unconventional tactics, Alice Paul eventually succeeded in forcing President Woodrow Wilson and a reluctant U.S. Congress to pass the Nineteenth Amendment, granting women the right to vote. Here at last is the inspiring story of the young woman whose dedication to women’s rights made that long-held dream a reality.
