Mission

The Mission of the Parishioners

We, the parishioners of St. Martin of Tours, are a Roman Catholic parish of the Diocese of Cleveland, founded in 1840 for Valley City, Ohio. 

We are a people of faith, hope, and charity growing in our in our relationship with Jesus Christ through worship, service, and study. 

As a people transformed by the Holy Spirit into the image of Christ, we are moved:

  • To give fitting worship to God, to give thanks for our blessings, and to be strengthened by His Word and Sacraments
  • To share our talent and treasure with our family, faith community, and those from conception to natural death who are in need 
  • To extend hope to all by living and teaching what Jesus Christ taught and handed down from the Apostles to the Church
  • To sacrifice precious time to be a true disciple by prayer, study, and reflection on God's presence in our lives

We welcome individuals and households who are drawn to be an active part of this mission.
