Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields hosts community forums


More than 100 people gathered at the Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields - in the sanctuary and via Zoom - for a discussion featuring Dr. Phillip Gorski, a Yale University sociologist and co-author of “The Flag and the Cross: White Christian Nationalism and the Threat to American Democracy.”

On this week’s schedule is David Contosta, a parishioner and Chestnut Hill College professor who will present his book, "An American Childhood," which recounts his growing up in the 1950s and '60s. He presents the great American "dream view" of front porches and glass milk bottles, as well as exclusionary social conditions of the time. 

As these dialogues continue, save the dates for "Inclusive Language in Parish and Worship" on Nov. 16th and 30th. The forums follow Wednesday Food and Fellowship at 6 p.m. in the Parish Hall and start at 7pm. 

All events are open to the community. For more information visit
