Saint Martin’s Church, located at the corner of Solon Road and Chagrin River Road – 6295 Chagrin River Road – in Bentleyville (across from the village hall and police station) near the village of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio and warmly welcomes newcomers and visitors.
We are a family friendly and welcoming community of faith with our roots in the Anglican tradition of worship. We offer two Eucharistic worship services each weekend: 8 a.m. Sunday (Rite I Said) and 10 a.m. Sunday (Rite II Choral). Many other ministries have flourished among us, some of which continue to be active in this time of restriction, including Outreach, Bible Study, Educational Series, Ecumenical Participation, Pastoral Care, The Order of the Daughters of the King, and Parish Life, not to mention the many worship oriented programs such as Chancel Choir, Acolytes and Servers and Readers, Altar Guild, and others.
Our professional leadership is provided by our rector The Reverend Dr. John A. Cerrato and by our staff: Choir Director Tim Cochran, organist Brother Gary Jeriha, OFM, and executive assistant/parish administrator Michele Baskette. Our governance is centered in a Vestry (church council) made up of parishioners who give of their gifts to manage and care for the needs of the parish. Many volunteers add much to the vitality of our community, serving not only in the Church but also in the wider world.
During the months of January, February and March 2023, The Reverend Richard Israel is serving as our sabbatical priest, while our rector engages in a sabbatical program of study and travel.
Sunday morning is our principal time of worship, with occasional worship services offered on Wednesday evenings. CURRENTLY WE OFFER HOLY EUCHARIST AT 8 AM and 10 AM EACH SUNDAY. Safety and health protocols apply.
