Saint Martin of Tours was founded in 1897, at the request of Bishop Charles McDonnell, the second bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn. At that time, the Parish served the 25 to 30 known Catholic families of the Seaford, Massapequa, Amityville and Copiague areas. During the summertime, this number increased by another 10 to 20 families.
Today there are approximately 2,500 families registered at St. Martin's with the physical parish boundaries including Amityville, East Massapequa, and portions of Amity Harbor, Copiague, and North Amityville
The Parish has a thriving elementary school, with approximately 400 students enrolled from nursery school through eighth grade.
St. Martin's is also very active in our local community, working with other Christian churches in the village, through Amityville Ecumenical Ministries, on common causes.
We invite you to become more informed about St. Martin's so that you can avail yourself of many of our worship, educational and social programs. We hope you search our site and spread the good news.
