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.
Pope Francis has been encouraging all Catholics to embrace the power of the media to communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ. Therefore, we are very happy to announce that the Parish Media Team has produced the first issue of the SXM Catholic News. Through this publication we want to share our faith, convey important news, and invite Catholics to important events in our parish. You can acquire a copy of the news at $1.00 after mass.

The goals and objectives of this plan will be explained by the Parish Coordinators.This session will also allow those in attendance to come into a better understanding of the plan and the overall effect it has had and continues to have on our parish. There will be an opportunity at the end of the presentations for “questions and answers” and the possibility to join one of the working groups in their respective area of responsibility within the plan.
