Saint Martin of Tours is the patron saint of soldiers, chaplains, quartermasters, and cavalry. The Saint Martin of Tours Society includes those who have contributed 20 consecutive years of donations. An annual Mass will be celebrated on the Memorial of Saint Martin of Tours (November 11) in recognition of the generosity of this donor group and for their personal intentions.
Dear well-beloved Saint, you were first a soldier like your father. Converted to the Church, you became a soldier of Christ, a priest and then a Bishop of Tours. Lover of the poor and model for pagans and Christians alike, protect our soldiers at all times. Make them strong, just, and charitable, always aiming at establishing peace on earth. Amen.
