THANK YOU… My deepest thanks to all of you who remembered me with a Christmas card or letter, gifts, Mass offerings and prayers. My neuropathic fingers prevent me from writing all the thank-you notes I used to write in the past. I hope you understand and accept my thanks. Special thanks to the entire staff, especially to our maintenance staff, for transporting, decorating and “un"-decorating our church. Rose Gundlach and Dorothy Merlo and their helpers worked above and beyond the call of duty. Ditto on Sr. Pat’s holiday thank you note two weeks ago, and to Sr. Pat herself for all of her many works behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU… To all of you who consistently support your parish with your Sunday offerings, sacrifice and electronic giving. It is because of your stewardship that we are able to have the funds to keep our parish running, and especially to be able to reach out into the community to the poor. I recently received a thank-you note from the Pope Francis Center located at Saints Peter and Paul Jesuit Church on Jefferson Ave. in Detroit, who thanks us for donating the funds to provide 300 back packs filled with essential items for the homeless. And I’m sure that Archbishop Vigneron thanks us for reaching and exceeding our 2020 CSA target!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU… Speaking of your parish church support, we always have a numbers discrepancy when we prepare our end of the year donation statements for each of our parishioners who gave $500 or more over the past year. Although we work on a fiscal year from July 1 to June 30, our donations are tabulated from January 1 to December 31. So, some of your Christmas and Holy Family donations were not received and posted until after January 1 of the new year. This donation will be reflected for the giving year of 2021, and not 2020. Electronic Giving is posted when received as well.
Fr. Nick Zukowski
We, the parishioners of St. Martin de Porres of Warren,
reflecting the qualities of our patron saint, strive to
proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, celebrate the mystery
of God’s love in our midst, and serve one another and the wider
human community, thus continuing the Mission of Jesus Christ.

Covid-19 Vaccine Concerns
The Archdiocese of Detroit Department of Communications shares the following statements from U.S. bishops confirming the moral permissibility of two new COVID-19 vaccines.
On Dec. 18, Archbishop of Detroit Allen Vigneron joined his brother bishops of the Michigan dioceses to release the following statement:
“It is morally permissible to receive the vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna. Neither of these vaccines has used cell lines originating in tissue taken from aborted babies in their design, development, and production.
