Our Mission

We have come together as a people of God, united as one family, to put aside our differences and to reach out to those in need as Jesus did. We will strive to bring faith, hope, and love to those in need who look to us for spiritual and financial support

WHAT DO WE DO?

  • Provide spiritual and financial assistance to those in need in our parish community
  • Provide nonperishable food to the hungry
  • Provide food donations and support to various charitable organizations in El Paso and Juarez
  • Make referrals to community resources 
  • Study and grow in faith by attending Tepeyac and others virtual education classes

WHAT MEMBERSHIP INVOLVES

  • A regular meeting or perhaps two hours once a week. At the meetings, the home visits made by each member are reported and discussed, necessary action is take, and plans for follow-up (if needed) are agreed upon. The business of the meeting is strictly confidential
  • Our meetings have always been considered essential to the spirit of our ministry. It ensures efficiency and determination in our work and binds the members together in bonds of friendship.
  • Home visits – Active members make home visits in the company of another member.
  • A prayer is said before and after each meeting to remind members that the purpose of our work is to see the face of God in the poor.

PRAYER TO SAN MARTIN

To you Saint Martin de Porres we prayerfully lift up our hearts filled with serene confidence and devotion.

Mindful of your unbounded and helpful charity to all levels of society and also of your meekness and humility of heart, we offer our petitions to you.

Pour out upon our families the precious gifts of your solicitous and generous intercession; show to the people of every race and every color the paths of unity and of justice; implore from our Father in heaven the coming of his kingdom, so that through mutual benevolence in God men may increase the fruits of grace and merit the rewards of eternal life.

Amen.

For I was Hungry you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink – Matthew 25
