Have Car, Will Travel? Volunteer Drivers Urgently Needed!

All our “snowbirds” are heading South for the Winter! Won’t you please help fill in for them? Many of our regular drivers take a couple months off this time of year, but the need for transportation does not lessen. The Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers program needs drivers who can provide rides for our older and disabled neighbors so that they can get to doctor appointments and essential errands. Just a couple hours of your time can make a huge difference in someone’s life. You pick your own area & your own times. Drive as often or as little as you like in the comfort of your own car. Even one more ride a year might get someone to an appointment that could save their live! Daytime drivers especially needed!

Please call IVC today at (586) 757-5551 for more information.

Men of the Hearts Podcast–Office of Priestly Vocations

Listen now to our new podcast co-hosted by Fr. Craig Giera, Director of Priestly Vocations, and Fr. David Pellican, Associate Pastor at Divine Child Parish, as they explore the richness of priestly vocations and share how to discern a call from God. We are Men of the Hearts because both the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus beat as one to animate the call in young men. It is Mary that brings us to Jesus, and it is at Sacred Heart Major Seminary that men’s hearts are formed after the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Here's the link:

Right To Life


“We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, of killings, of wars, of hatred. If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other? Abortion kills twice. It kills the body of the baby and it kills the conscience of the mother. Abortion is profoundly anti-women. Three quarters of its victims are women: half the babies and all the mothers.”


St. Teresa of Calcutta”.

Please pray for respect for life.

Parish Representative for Right To Life




St. Martin de Porres First Saturday Memorial Association
 
What is the St. Martin de Porres first Saturday Memorial Association?
It is a special offering made by parishioners through which your intentions are remembered at the 5:00 Mass to be celebrated each FIRST SATURDAY of the month
throughout the entire year. 

Why start such a memorial?
This Monthly Memorial fulfills many of your requests for monthly prayer for your special intentions or for a loved ones who are deceased; your intentions will be listed each week on the back of the parish bulletin. Your offering of $60.00 per year will help to support the parish bulletin.

What is the requested offering?
A yearly offering of $60.00 is asked for the intentions to be remembered at this Mass, to be celebrated on the first Saturday of each month at the 5:00 Mass.

How do I list my Intentions?
You may list your intentions one of two ways. As one individual name: Mary Jones or you may list family groupings: The Jones Family. Multiple names may be listed but require an additional offering of $60.00 for each name listed.

When will these Masses begin?
As the memorial begins to form, and intentions are submitted, we will begin the Masses in May of this year. Some have already submitted names. The “intention year” will then be from May to May. And then we begin again. If you wish to continue having your intentions remembered at these Masses, you will be asked to renew your offering each year.

How do I become part of the “St. Martin de Porres First Saturday Memorial Association?
Please submit form on bottom of bulletin Memorial page with your payment to:

Monthly Prayer Calendar

It is a privilege to pray for one another as baptized people. Here at St. Martin’s all parishioners are remembered at a Mass every weekend. Below is a list of those who are employed at St. Martin’s and those who are liturgical ministers or serve within the Archdiocese of Detroit who also need our prayers. We ask that on the day given you offer a simple prayer for that person or group that they be given the help they need to be “joyful missionary disciples.”
