March Madness ~~ Lottery Tickets

Because of the limited, but initial success of the November Lottery, and the enthusiasm for and demand by our parishioners for more lottery tickets, the church has decided to have a "March Madness Lottery" ticket sale. Tickets will be available for sale the entire months of January and February, with the 3-digit drawings beginning March 1st. The goal is to sell all 999 lottery tickets, pay prize money to 97 winners, and net the church $2,500. Look for more articles in the bulletin and on the website for ticket availability and places to purchase your tickets.


​See your Parish Bulletin for a list of winners

HAPPY THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT…

Our new season of preparation and anticipation is at the

halfway mark! I hope that in the midst of all the activities

of physical preparation for holiday parties and gifts, we

also prepare spiritually for the coming of Jesus at Christmas.

Find a quiet corner in the house which can be your escape

to sit and be still in the Lord’s presence. 


DECK THE HALLS…

One of my FAVORITE traditions here at St. Martin de Porres is our annual tree-trimming service. Parishioners of all ages will come to church Thursday, December 19 to decorate our big tree in the church sanctuary, to bring generous gifts for poor families in our community, and to visit with Santa Claus, who we all know is really St. Nicholas in disguise! Even the Boy Scouts are here to be our special guests of service. The part of the evening that always brings a tear to my eye and a smile on my face is the performance by our children of a special skit that shows us the true meaning of Christmas. This year, their play is called, “Just a Little Christmas.” 


GET TO CONFESSION…

On Friday, December 13, we will have our Advent Penance Service here at St. Martin de Porres, starting at 7:00 p.m. We will begin with a Liturgy of the Word Service, and Examination of Conscience and a Prayer of Contrition and Repentance. Several priests will be on hand to hear individual confessions and offer absolution. If it has been a while, or if your need to confess as part of your spiritual growth, please accept this warm invitation.
