Because of a generous parish volunteer and her family and friends, and because of the ongoing generosity of our parishioners, our Holiday Giving Program will go on this year. The giveaway took place Saturday, Nov. 21, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Needy families were registered, and the Thanksgiving gift boxes were brought to their cars, instead of risking contact in our building. This year, we were not giving away turkeys and perishable food, but were giving supermarket gift cards for families to purchase those items. Thanks for your donations of products throughout the year, and for your cash, checks and gifts cards to make about 60 families able to celebrate a Happy Thanksgiving! And thanks to Gerry Kostrzeba for coordinating this massive project and volunteers!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU…
It appears that many churches have a Thanksgiving Eve service and nothing on Thanksgiving Day. We always go rogue here at St. Martin de Porres! Our usual Wednesday Night Mass at 7 PM is our usual Mass, and we always plan on opening up the church for Mass on Thanksgiving Day at 9:30 AM. People come from other parishes to join us. Hope you can too. As is our custom, our parish offices will be closed on Friday and Saturday, and there will be NO 9:30 AM Mass on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. This weekend is the Solemn Feast of Jesus Christ, King of the Universe (it used to be called Christ the King Sunday), and the weekend after is the First Sunday of Advent. Time once again for Emmanuel to come!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU…
Sunday November 29, the First Sunday of Advent, should be the day when Archbishop Allen Vigneron announces the composition of all of the “Families of Parishes” for the entire Archdiocese of Detroit. I have it on good authority that we are going from about 220 parishes to 71 “Families” of Parishes. The Archdiocese of Detroit is divided into four Regions. We are part of the Northeast Region, and Bishop Robert Fisher is our Regional Bishop. The Northeast Region will be made up of 14 Families of Parishes. 7 Families will be in Wave One, and 7 Families will be in Wave Two. We and the other three parishes that will make up our Family are in Wave One.
Also, the dispensation from attendance at Sunday and Holy Day Masses has been extended once again in our Archdiocese from November 22, 2020 to Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021. All able-bodied Catholics who have been going out for essential services, meals and entertainment are still strongly encouraged to come to Mass. Come join us! We have a safe and sanitary worship space! (click below this article to read the Archbishop's letter)

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.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
During these difficult months during the pandemic, I have granted a general dispensation from the grave obligation that we as Catholic Christians have to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation in the Archdiocese of Detroit, in part to help ease the conscience of those who are unable to be present for public worship due to risk of illness to themselves or their families. The most recent dispensation expires on November 22, at which point we had hoped the pandemic would have eased enough to allow all of us to return in an unrestricted way to our celebrations of the Holy Eucharist.
Are you registered at St. Martin de Porres?
Do you receive envelopes from us every other month?
