Coral Gables United Church of Christ | 3010 De Soto Blvd, Coral Gables, FL 33134
Celebrate St. Martin’s Day with songs and lantern parade. Everyone is invited!  The life of Martin of Tours is more than a legend.  The UCC together with Wilfried Wassermann, pastor of the Martin Luther congregation in Orlando, will commemorate the life of Martin of Tours as well as his values and virtues.  In the spirit of St. Martin, the UCC asks that families bring voluntary donations to support their social work.

Following the church service and lantern parade, traditional Stutenmaenner/Bread Men will be offered to the children.  Please order your Stutenmaenner online no later than November 9th at 12pm.
