It means (literally or figuratively): To Save, i.e., Deliver or Protect, To keep Safe and Sound, To Rescue from Danger or Destruction, To Save from Suffering, To Restore to Health, To Deliver from Evil, To Cure, To Renew, Heal, Preserve, Do well, Be or Make whole.

SOZO is here at St. Martin’s to develop and build our High School faith community. Through evangelization and the power of the Holy Spirit we use faith based activities to guide our teens into a deeper relationship with Jesus, family, friends & community. Jesus wants us to experience SOZO through Him, with Him and for the Glory of God the Father. We strive to empower the youth to become aware of their unique gifts and identity. We encourage recognition of how they fit into the Kingdom of God here on earth as strong confident disciples building up the Body of Christ.
