Last year, St. Martin de Porres implemented a new weather policy.
If Warren Consolidated Schools cancel classes because of the weather, St. Martin de Porres parish offices will also be closed, and there will be NO MASS that day (except Funerals). Please watch your TV for this information, we will also post it here.
Thank you for your understanding
OUR LOTTO RAFFLE IS A SUCCESS, SORT OF…
Our parish financial situation is precarious. With the loss of 100 people at each of our weekend Masses due to the Hoover Road construction project, our Sunday collection budget is short $15,000 for the year. But the GOOD NEWS is that to date, our first attempt at the lottery raffle ticket sale resulted in raising enough money to cover costs and prizes, with a modest profit of $281! 619 out of the 1000 tickets were sold, leaving us with 381 tickets, which could have raised another $2000.
We hope to do better with our next ticket sale for the months of December and January, as people anticipate purchasing more tickets to give away as Christmas presents. Please continue to support your parish with your generous stewardship in the Sunday Offertory envelopes (maybe another $3.00 a week “bump?”) and with your support of our next lotto raffle ticket sale in December and January. Thank you!

NOVEMBER, THE MONTH TO REMEMBER…
In our Catholic tradition, the month of November is that time
of the year to remember our beloved dead and to think of our
own mortality. Have you visited a cemetery lately? Studies
show that folks visit the graves of their beloved ones on a regular
basis for the first five years after death. Then the number of
visits become fewer and then not at all.
We receive a “partial indulgence” every time we visit a cemetery, and offer an Our Father, a Hail Mary and a Glory Be for the repose of the soul of the deceased and then again for the intentions of our Holy Father. If we add going to Confession and receiving Holy Communion, praying one rosary and reflecting for fifteen minutes on the Mysteries of the Rosary, we can gain a plenary (full) indulgence to apply to their soul or to ours. Indulgences can reduce our time in Purgatory, which is a state of existence preparing us for Heaven.
NOVEMBER, A TIME TO GIVE THANKS…
For the second year in a row, St. Faustina Parish in Warren is hosting an Interfaith Thanksgiving Service THURSDAY, November 21st at 7:00 PM in their church. Members from the Catholic, Christian, Protestant and Muslim traditions will gather to give thanks for the countless and varied blessings God has given us. Hope you can join us!
