What is the Community of Saint Martin?

The community of Saint Martin, is an association of priests and deacons, who depend directly of the Holy See. The community’s spirituality is rooted in traditional liturgy, an intensive community life, a continuous search for truth whilst keeping constant joy and charity at its heart. Living in local parishes, priests and deacons, live their apostolate life while serving dioceses in a spiritual and pastoral fraternity.

don Paul Préaux

“Taking God seriously without taking oneself seriously.” We summarize in this way a spirit which we love to share, made of a love for the liturgy, joy and a familial simplicity.
