Our Patron Saint
Saint Martin of Tours, born around 316 AD at Sabaria, Pannonia [now Szombathely, Hungary], became the third Bishop of Tours and is highly esteemed as a great saint by the Church of France. Actually, many locations across Europe have also been placed under his patronage. St. Martin is the patron of the poor, soldiers, conscientious objectors, tailors, and winemakers. A great number of miracles have been recorded due to his intercession while living and after his death. We celebrate his feast day November 11th and encourage you to learn more about Saint Martin of Tours.
The first church building was erected under the direction of Rev. Daniel Maloney, who from 1848–1855 served the small local group of Catholics in Martinsville from his home parish in Columbus, IN.
