HAPPY FEAST OF THE ASCENSION... What do you remember about finishing your internship or apprenticeship and having to go on your own for the first time? How about after graduation, when you faced for the first time the challenge of a new job? What do you remember about losing a loved one through death, or having to move to another state because of business? This is what is going on in the hearts of the Apostles as they gather on the mountaintop to say farewell to their Lord, Master and Friend. After Jesus Christ ascends into Heaven, two angels look at the band of brothers and tell them to stop gazing up at the heavens or looking downcast. They say, “Get to work! The Christian Faith has been passed on to you!” It has also been passed on to us, to you and me, to hand on to the next generations of believers. This is what the Feast of the Ascension reminds us: “Go and make disciples! Go and make a difference!”
SPEAKING OF TRANSITIONS… Because of your continued generous financial support, we are able to function with a full staff this coming fiscal year, which starts July 1st. I am happy, blessed and pleased to introduce to you our newest staff members:
CHRISTIAN SERVICE DIRECTOR: Mrs. Christina Corona is a long-time catechist here at St. Martin de Porres, who is eager to learn this new ministry. For now, her part-time responsibilities will be limited because of COVID-19. The three outreach ministries we are still providing are the Holiday Giving Program, collecting and sending food to St. Veronica Parish for their food pantry in Eastpointe, and the telephone welfare phone calls to our elderly members. As more COVID restrictions are lifted, more parish outreach projects will resume. Christina also will assess phone inquiries and walk-in inquiries of people needing help of any kind.
DIRECTOR OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION/FAITH FORMATION: Sandy Acord is our new full-time DRE. She is a former catechist and DRE from another parish in our vicariate.
DIRECTOR OF MUSIC MINISTRIES: Michael Adams continues to be our part-time Music Director. John McGovern, now semi-retired, continues to play for Morning Mass and weekday Funeral Masses. Bruce Langlands leads our Contemporary Group on weekends.
PARISH BOOKKEEPER: Dawn Peters retires on July 1st as our part-time contracted service staff member. She has done a superior job keeping us in the black and paying our bills on time! Her successor, Jeanne Kelly (no relation to Gene Kelly!), is a former bookkeeper and business manager from another parish in our vicariate and is familiar with the old and the new AOD finance and administration procedures and paperwork.
HEAD OF MAINTENANCE: Brian Tomaszewski continues as our full-time Head of Maintenance. Larry Lage, who is semi-retired, continues as a part-time staff member for major parish capital and upgrading projects.
PART-TIME EVENING MAINTENANCE: Mark Miller has 30 years of experience in hotel maintenance. Mark will work Monday through Thursday nights, which will be most helpful when evening events are allowed to resume in the parish center again.
