​ ·  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.​​

St. Martin de Porres - Christian Formation

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 9. 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. ​​
