Sending you out the livestream link from the Sunday, 10.00 am Mass for the 25th Sunday of Ordinary Time.

(Our sincere apologies for the interruption to the YouTube stream this morning as our internet service was temporarily disrupted. Here is the link of the Holy Mass)

The Mass will be live-streamed on Sunday at 10.00 am and will be available on our YouTube channel (ST MARTIN OF TOURS PARISH) onwards.

In recognition of the many wonderful ways the parishioners enrich parish life with the sharing of their time and talents with the parish community, Cardinal Thomas Collins announced earlier this year the institution of Stewardship Sunday as an annual occurrence across the entire Archdiocese on the 25th Sunday of Ordinary Time. As such, the first Stewardship Sunday will be on September 20, 2020. 


 Cardinal Collins prepared a Homily for Stewardship Sunday and asked all the parishes to share at all the masses this weekend. The video of the homily can be seen after the Gospel reading. God Bless you all.

Wishing you all a good long weekend.

God Bless,

 Fr Gijo

Welcome Back!

We are happy to resume the printing of the bulletin once again, and to welcome you back to mass either for weekday mass (church only until capacity is reached) or Saturday 5:00 p.m. or Sunday Masses by registering at eventbrite through our website or with assistance through the parish office. We are noticing an increase in numbers each week as people signal their comfort and safety with our cleaning and welcoming regimen for each mass. Please note that the use of masks or face coverings remains mandatory here in the church. We thank you for your co-operation! We remind you that Cardinal Collins has continued the dispensation from Sunday mass for those of any age whose health is compromised, have a fever or who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19. The livestreaming of the Mass on our parish website will also continue each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for those who cannot physically join us for mass at the church.

 Thank You for your continued financial Support!

We are grateful for your support throughout this challenging time. If you are unable to join us for Sunday mass (where there will be no collection baskets circulated, but simply an offering basket at the entrance of the church) you may wish to consider the option of a monthly debit from your bank account through PAG - Pre-Authorized Giving Plan.
