WELCOME TO “ORDINARY TIME”… With the celebration of the Baptism of the Lord last Sunday passed, we begin the longest season of the Church Year: Ordinary Time. This is such a misnomer (badly named) because the word “ordinary” in our English language is, well, ordinary. The word was chosen by experts in the Liturgy not to denote something ordinary, but indeed something EXTRAORDINARY: the fullness of the Christian Mystery of the Life, Passion, Death, Resurrection and Ascension of the Lord, and the Sending of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday. All that is too much to fit in a title, so they went with “Tempus Ordinarius,” or time measured by the “ordinal” numbers: 1, 2, 3, etc. Today is the 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, and Ordinary Time will continue until Ash Wednesday, March 2nd. Ordinary Time will resume after the Solemn Feast of Pentecost, June 5th. Usually, there are 34 weeks of Ordinary Time each year.

SPEAKING OF NUMBERS… This spring, St. Martin de Porres Parish, founded in 1962, will celebrate its 60th anniversary as a parish. We have several members in our parish who were founding members and families of the parish, and who still live in the area and attend Mass here. Also, this year, the Active Christian Women’s Club, founded in 1977 with Fr. John Hall as their Chaplain, is celebrating 45 years as one of the strongest and most active groups in the parish. Yours Truly, ordained on May 1, 1982, will celebrate my 40th anniversary as a priest. We are putting together a planning committee to mark and to celebrate all three events.

THE LATEST ON FAMILIES OF PARISHES… The four pastors and one associate pastor from our Family of Parishes met with our “Missionary” and “Coach” from the Archdiocese of Detroit to begin taking the first steps in this missionary process. From January to April of this year, the priests will meet to discuss the path forward. This will be followed with meetings of the various parish staffs and councils to answer questions and communicate updates. The parish staffs will learn more about the Family of Parishes Mission Structure, and about those interested in applying for the role of the Director of the six areas of parish life in that structure. The staffs will learn more about each other and start to collaborate where possible and needed. More later!

Welcome to St. Martin de Porres Church

​​​THANK YOU…

We were all stunned by the devastation of the multiple tornadoes in Kentucky and neighboring areas. Hardest hit was the town of Mayfield, Kentucky which alone lost 1000 homes. With the idea and help of our Christian Service Director, Christina Corona, we agreed to give to the needy people of Mayfield whatever goods and food were left over from our Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Giving Program, along with a parish check for $2000 from our remaining HGP funds. We also will give them some of our leftover gift cards. Roger Harrison, from Chippewa Valley High School, will pick up our donations and drive them to the Seven Oaks Church of Christ in Mayfield, which is serving as a delivery hub for donations in Mayfield. Your generous donations to our parish will touch lives hundreds of miles away!
