Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord

March 31, 2024

Easter Message from the Pastor


Dear Parishioners and Friends,


The Parish Staff, Fr. Gener, and I wish you a blessed Easter!


The message of Easter is fullness and newness of life. Jesus rolls away the stone of discouragement, dread, doubt, defeat, fear and death. He allows the life of joy, peace, love, and light to permeate, so that there could be new beginnings. Christ invites us to journey with him to experience the same.


During this Easter season at St Martin of Tours Parish, ten will be baptized and fully initiated. Two adults will be received into Catholic Church. Another two adults will celebrate their Confirmation. We also have 36 children celebrating their First Holy Communion. Bishop Oscar Cantu will confirm our youth on May 26. This year, we are excited to have 57 youth from our parish celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation. We celebrate with them and congratulate them! Our prayer is that each of them will roll away the stone of discouragement, dread, doubt, defeat, and fear to live their life from the fountain of love.




God bless you all!

Whitney Todd Stipe and Millen Debesay made their Profession of Faith in the Catholic Church, were Confirmed and received their First Holy Communion at Easter Vigil. We are blessed to have them as part of the parish family and the Body of Christ.


We commend these faithful elects and candidates for diligently participating in the OCIA process of coming into the Church and receiving these Sacraments of Initiation. Our parish staff and catechist will continue to pray for them as they begin the adventure of living the life of a faithful Catholic.


We also want to acknowledge the dedicated catechists who tirelessly come each Sunday to journey with the Elects and Candidates for the duration of the OCIA process:

Stephen and Cathleen Lencioni, Jill Marie Weeks, and Martha Hoffman. Thank you very much for sharing the love of Jesus in serving in the ministry that Jesus started. We acknowledge with gratitude the hard work, dedication, and faith our Catechetical Director, Merry Kaelani in this entire process.


Please continue to keep all our new Catholics in our prayers for their continued growth and perseverance in the Faith.


To the newest members of our community, please cherish this important moment every day. Remember you were called for a mission: to worship him as One Body of Christ and to spread God’s love to others.
