Sacraments - Christian Faith Formation 
 ·  Reconciliation (First Confession) 
 ·  First Eucharist (First Holy Communion) 
 ·  Confirmation 

Sacramental preparation takes place at home and during regular class time. We assist parents and guardians as they exercise their role as the first and best educators of their children in faith formation and the practice of the Catholic faith. 

​ ·  Are you thinking about becoming Catholic?
 ·  Do you know someone who is?
 ·  Do you need to complete your Sacramental preparation?

St. Martin de Porres Parish will be starting Adult formation sessions for adults who would like to discover more about the Catholic Church.


RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the program which brings new members into the Church. The Christian Worship Office in the Department of Parish Life and Services, uses CSA funds to develop certification programs for RCIA ministers and formation for RCIA teams, as well as for RCIA consultation to parishes. Please contact the Parish Office at 586-264-7515 for more information on joining the program.​​

Christian Faith Formation 

Faith formation serves to guide Catholics in more fully proclaiming Christ ​as our center and light. By providing guidance, inspiration, and support in our journey ​with Christ, we inspire Christians to incorporate our faith in all aspects of their daily life.

Congratulations to the newly Confirmed! I am very proud of all of the Confirmation Candidates for their hard work in preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. I hope you will keep God in your life and continue your faith journey. I know you will some day make a difference in this world and use the gifts and talents God has given you. Go out and be a disciple of Jesus. I hope you will become an active member of St. Martin de Porres. 


May Jesus come to bless you on your Confirmation Day.
