There is no time like the present for St Martin to stand in unity as we pay homage to the ones that lost their lives during the passing of Irma and we give thanks for all the lives spared. As this St Martin Day Celebration is for the people, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport is hosting St. Martin Day celebrations under the theme “SXM Strong”. This is an open invitation for persons to take part in the month-long celebrations, for the love of St. Martin, on the Road to St. Martin Day, including St. Martin Day itself.
