Welcome to the St. Martin of Tours Catholic Parish

The Catholic Community of St.Martin of Tours, Diocese of Willemstad, Curacao, welcomes you to our parish website. It is our hope that you will find the information you are searching for and more! We realize that our website is used not only by the local Catholics but also by others from around the world who visited our island and perhaps joined us at the Sunday Eucharist at one of the three churches located on the Dutch side of our island Sint Maarten, Philipsburg, Simpsonbay or South Reward.

The intent of this website is quite simple. We want to keep in contact with all you parishioners and international friends of the parish. We welcome your questions and suggestions. You are also invited to sign up to automatically receive our weekly parish bulletin. Just sign up by filling out your email address below, and submit. 

May this website be a tool for the proclamation of the Gospel and a modest source for our continued growth and faith we share.

A beautiful afternoon in the Parish Hall

Fundashon Korsow Uni, together with the Sint Maarten Leos, organized the annual free haircut for school going boys at the St. Martin of Tours parish hall. This year the girls were also invited to have their hair groomed by professional hair dressers. While the children were waiting for their turn in the barber chair, they were entertained by an animated movie on a big screen television. They received something to drink while waiting. After the hair cut a backpack with school materials was shared with the students. Fundashon Korsow Uni, Sint Maarten Leos and the many volunteers that made this event possible can look back on a very successful afternoon.

An impression of the afternoon is available when you click the picture.
