The Feast of Saint Martin de Porres

Today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Martin de Porres. Martin was born in Lima, Peru, of a Spanish father and a black slave mother. He was a lay brother who humbly ministered to the poor and the sick, especially African slaves.

Devoted to the Holy Eucharist, he was a close friend of Saint Rose of Lima, Patron of Social Justice, and of peoples of mixed races.

Thank you, parish family, for watching Father’s latest video above, and for sharing it with your friends. May God bless you, and may God continue to bless our community, our country, and our world.
