Sacraments - Christian Faith Formation
· Reconciliation (First Confession)
· First Eucharist (First Holy Communion)
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 Formation News & Events
Please join us for the second season of the Chosen Movie on Mondays at 1:00 p.m. in the Parish Center. If you haven’t seen season one, we will catch you up. We will watch one episode a week and discuss some reflection questions after each episode. There are eight episodes in season two.
The Chosen is an amazing, biblically-centered, quality video series that tracks the life of Jesus through the Gospels. It’s a fresh look at the Gospels for those who have been reading the stories for years or for those who are just curious about who Jesus is and was. It allows us to see Jesus through the eyes of those who knew Him and chose to follow Him. The technical execution of all the scenes, which feels human and believable, will draw you into a sense of what it might have been like to be living
in the moment and the types of conversations that might have occurred.
I hope you will join us to enhance your faith journey and to reflect on your own
personal relationship with Jesus. Open your minds and hearts to Jesus to understand what has been written in Scripture. We have had great conversations within the group watching season one. If you’re more comfortable watching the movie, eating popcorn and listening to the conversations taking place, that’s okay too. You will definitely be touched by each episode
