The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our worship services and parish office hours. Masses have resumed with adjustments. We also provide a variety of digital resources to keep our community connected in worship, prayer and outreach. Learn more.
Thank you to all who dropped off food or made a monetary donation for the St. Martin de Porres Food Pantry in June. It is super important for the food pantry at St. Martin de Porres that we have another successful food collection.
We hope you can join us for mass this weekend. Pre-registering is required for Sunday Mass. Daily Mass has resumed as well. You will not need to pre-register for Daily Mass but you will need to sign in on arrival.
