We here at St. Martin’s have always been ready to help when help is needed by someone in our congregation. That is why we have a wonderful program called Take Them A Meal.
Here is how it works: Whenever someone has had an operation or any other incapacitating illness or problem or even a new baby, they may need meals. If so, one of our Priests gets in touch with us and we make a call to that parishioner to make the arrangements. We always ask if they have any food allergies or preferences. Using this nationally run program, our list of people willing to help is contacted and those who can at that time, sign up to supply a meal for a specific day. Done! The meal can be homemade or purchased. A gourmet or fancy meal is not needed, just a good, healthy meal to supply comfort and nourishment for our recovering friend. The Take Them A Meal program will even remind you via email the day before your meal is due! They even have a link to click if you need a map to the home.
We need and are looking for a few more people to add to our list so no one is called upon too often. Can you help?
