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.

Father Elvio celebrating Dominica day on St. Maarten

The natives of the island of Dominica in our parish welcomed a very special guest as they celebrated Dominica Day 2017. Father Elvio flew over from the heavily damaged island to be with the Dominicans living on St. Maarten. Father Elvio explained that his parish church lost part of its zinc during the hurricane. The presbytery of his church is completely destroyed. Father Elvio ensured us that although Dominica was very much damaged, the island would rise to new heights in the years to come.
