(I am the vine, you are the branches)
“Let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.”
Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains
in me and I in him will bear much fruit.” Everyone else “will be
thrown out like a branch and wither.”
Let us Pray
Almighty ever-living God, constantly accomplish the Paschal Mystery within us, that those you were pleased to make new in Holy Baptism may, under your protective care, bear much fruit and come to the joys of life eternal. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
Pray for our Sick:
Fr. Ron Matthews
Lord hear our prayers.

St. Martin's: From the Diocese
At the very beginning of the Pandemic of the Coronavirus COVID-19, The Bishop issued a dispensation from the obligation to participate personally in the celebration of Holy Mass (Sunday).
This Dispensation from personal participation in Sunday Mass will end on Friday, May 21, 2021. This means that beginning on the weekend of May 21-22, 2021, Pentecost Sunday, all the faithful of the Diocese will again be bound to personally attend Sunday Mass.
Of course, all who are seriously ill, have limited mobility or a serious health concerns continue to be dispensed from personal Sunday Mass attendance. For part 1 Catechesis on the lifting of the dispensation please see: (
