About Our Speaker: Fr. Eddie Martin

Father Eddie Martin is a Louisiana native, who met the love of his life, Jennifer Ann Nates at the University of South Carolina, She was studying pharmaceuticals and he was studying chemical engineering. They wed in 1978 and were blessed with four children, three of whom are still alive today. Eddie worked as a chemical engineer until their first child arrived. Shortly thereafter, they created a family business, Greetings of the Heart based on Eddie’s artistic skills and Jennie’s entrepreneurial energy, which eventually evolved into Louisiana Gifts and Gallery, Inc just outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

In 2003, Edie felt a strong pull to give his life more fully to the service of others through the Church and enrolled in the Diaconate Formation Program. He was ordained as a Deacon of the Catholic Church in 2010. Following the birth of Jennie to eternal life, he returned to the seminary and was ordained into the priesthood in 2016.

Father Martin currently serves as Pastor to the wonderful people of the “Bayou Cluster”, of St. Anne in Napoleonville, Louisiana, St. Philomena in Labadieville, Louisiana, and the Assumption of the Blessed Mother in Plattenvile, Louisiana. He has a unique priestly perspective. with his family background and the five grandchildren, he enjoys today.

Father Eddie has a new book out called “The Last Dance” , a trus story of faith, courage, and love.

Come hear Father Edie’s personal testimony of what God has done in his life. All will be blessed!
