WELCOME HOME!

St. Martin de Porres Parish is pleased to announce that we resumed public
Masses on Saturday, May 23 2020. For the safety of parishioners, staff and
the priest, the safety and sanitary guidelines listed below apply to all public
​celebrations of Mass in our church and must be followed:

Face-covering/masks MUST be worn by everyone over 3 years of age, in and
around the church. It is suggested that as soon as you arrive and exit your
vehicle, put your mask on. Please keep your mask on during Mass, except
for when you are receiving Holy Communion.

Once you enter the church, you will notice that social distancing seating has
been put in effect. We are only allowed to accommodate 20% of our normal
seating capacity, so please arrive 15-20 minutes before Mass. Please
remember social distancing (6’ separation at all times).

It is highly recommended that you thoroughly wash your hands prior to coming
to Church. It is recommended that you carry your own hand sanitizer. Public
sanitizer stations are at the church entrances. There will be no holding hands
during the Our Father and no Sign of Peace.

Distribution of Holy Communion will look different. Only the Body of Christ
(hosts) will be distributed, as we are not allowed to share the cup of the
Precious Blood. Remove your mask & gloves before receiving Communion.
We ask that you receive Communion in your hands. Receiving on the
tongue is permitted. The Ministers will sanitize their hands before, during
(if needed) and after distribution of Holy Communion.

Music: No worship aids (like our Gather book) will be available at Mass.
Singing from memory is permitted. Please keep your mask on while singing. 
Those older than 65 years of age (the recommended CDC age) with
compromised health conditions or who are caring for the sick in any way
are encouraged to remain at home.

The dispensation from the Sunday and Holy Day obligation to attend Mass is
granted to all the faithful through Monday, November 23, 2020. Those in
good health who enjoy dining out, shopping and traveling, are welcome and encouraged to join us for Mass. WELCOME!



OUR 2020 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL IS HERE!...

Because of the current COVID-19 and economic situation in our country, Archbishop Allen
Vigneron moved this year’s Catholic Services Appeal from the first weekend in May to the weekend of September 12-13. More importantly, the Archbishop has reduced all original 2020 CSA parish targets by 15%. I am very happy to report that we met and surpassed our 2019 CSA parish target by a couple thousand dollars. And I am also happy to report also that our new 2020 CSA parish target has been set by the Archbishop as $77,101. We can do it! I know with your generous support, we will reach and surpass our parish target this year! The AOD has sent out all CSA information to your homes. Please send in your gift or pledge card directly to them in the envelope provided. Our parish will be credited with all gifts received by the AOD. This spares us a lot of local preparation and work.

TODAY IS CATECHETICAL SUNDAY…

Every year in September, when most schools and institutions of learning begin a new program year, one Sunday is designated at “Catechetical Sunday” – a day to honor all who teach and learn the Catholic Faith. The 2020 Catechetical Sunday theme is taken from St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, “I Received from the Lord what I also Handed on to You.” This theme focuses on the essential work of catechesis, which is an invitation to a whole new life given by Christ Himself. This weekend, we commission and bless our catechists and all parents, who are called to be “the first and the best” teachers of the Faith for their children. Our Faith Formation and sacramental prep sessions will be virtual within the approved guidelines. We inaugurated this with a Zoom meeting of our catechists and me. 


WE COME TO YOUR TABLE…

Next Sunday at the 11 AM, nine children will be receiving their First Holy Communion. It is always a joy to share the Holy Eucharist with our children for the first time. Because of the limited seating in church due to the pandemic, please plan accordingly so that we will have enough room for our Communicants and their families. 


HERE’S THE LATEST ON “FAMILIES OF PARISHES”…

Each pastor was asked to submit to our Vicar by September 22nd their personal recommendation for the Family of Parishes they can work with. I consulted our parish staff and our Parish Pastoral Council for their input. Family of Parishes final groupings will be proposed by October 1st and then submitted to the Archbishop for his final approval.
