HERE’S AN APPLE-AT-CHA!


This was my second mission trip to Louisa, Kentucky. The unity with which the mission team worked and prayed together is something to experience. From the youngest to the oldest, everyone had an important part on this team.

WE NEED YOU, WE PRAISE YOU, WE THANK YOU…
Every year, as the demographics in the Warren area change

regarding practicing Catholic residents, and as our numbers

decline with the failing health and death of faithful parishioners,

we find ourselves with fewer and fewer parish stewards to serve

in our liturgical ministries. This includes Lectors, Extraordinary

Ministers of Holy Communion, Altar Servers, Ushers, Cantors,

Adult, Contemporary and Resurrection (Funeral) Choir Members

and Handbell Musicians. We cannot provide quality Sunday

Masses without YOUR stewardship and help! Training for NEW LECTORS will be this Thursday, September 26th at 6:00 PM in church. Training for NEW EMHC’S will be on Saturday, September 28th at 11:00 AM. Don’t leave Sr. Pat and me empty handed in an empty church, as has happened in the past. Remember the ten-word adage: “If it is to be, it is up to ME!” God is knocking on your heart… will you respond?

GREETINGS FROM YOUR SISTERS FROM ADRIAN, MICHIGAN…
Just over a year ago, two special members of our parish community entered a new phase of retirement and moved back into the Motherhouse of the Dominican Sisters of Adrian, Michigan. Sr. Noreen O’Connell, now 92 and Sr. Patricia Johnson, now 87, are in transition as they adjust to a new life. Sr. Noreen assisted parishioners with marriage annulments and celebrated her 70th anniversary of religious life with us a couple of years ago. They lived in Warren for 25 years before deciding to move back to be with their other Sisters in the Lord. Sr. Pat Whalen and I visited them a week ago and gave them your greetings and regards. The sisters offered us hospitality and a tour of the massive campus, which includes Sienna Heights University. They do miss the parish life of St. Martin de Porres but are very happy being of service, companionship and fellowship with their aging and dying sisters.
