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. 

The Christian Faith Formation process at St. Martin de Porres is open to all children,
levels 1 through 12. Our classes begin in September and conclude at the end of April.
We welcome children from families of other parishes in the surrounding area. We
​ask that families be registered at St. Martin de Porres Church, but it is not mandatory. ​​

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.​​

Vacation Bible School

Children ages 4 to 10 are invited to join SonForce Kids—God’s courageous team of disciples standing side by side to serve Him. As SonForce special agents, they will follow in the words of Joshua 1:9: Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified: do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

The SonForce Kids headquarters is located on a satellite orbiting high above the earth. In this hi-tech command center, SonForce agents gather to prepare for their five Daily Missions: Trust! Unite! Train! Follow! Lead!

Join us June 17 thru 21 from 9:30am until noon.  So get ready for an out-of-this-world adventure. SonForce Kids—courageous kids on a mission for God!
