Men's prayer group

On any given Saturday, while most of Mid-Michigan is just starting their day, a group of men meet at St Martha Parish. An ordinary group to the casual observer, these men are offering prayers for healing. For anyone. For any reason. Their experiences with the group attest to the power of prayer in our lives, especially group prayer directed towards a specific cause. They also speak to the sense of inner peace that they experience as a result of this practice, and how it deepens their sense of connection to God. If you want to experience what these men have come to realize as an integral part of their faith lives, please accept this invitation to join them on Saturday mornings at 7:30am in the Bride's Room at St Martha Church in Okemos.

For more information please call Mike Siminski (517) 505-0270

Our patroness St. Martha is smiling to know that we are firing up a Greeter program again.  More than ever, we will be rewarded in the coming year and beyond for ensuring everyone who comes to Mass experiences the famous St. Martha hospitality from their very first impression.

The main elements of the Greeter program are as follows:

  1. We will have two individuals or two couples (so from 2 to 4 people) at each of the North and South entrances for each Mass.  Up to 32 total slots to fill each weekend.
  2. There will be specifically assigned individuals to each Mass and each door.
  3. The Greeters will have a name tag and/or badge.
  4. The Greeters will be in place beginning 15 minutes before Mass.
  5. The same Greeters will be in place from after communion until 15 minutes following Mass.
  6. There will be a dress code of sorts: Sport coats or better for the men; the women probably don’t need one, but we’ll come up with something if needed.

Over the summer we will start signing people up and working out the kinks for scheduling, training, name tags, etc.  Training may seem unnecessary for saying “Hello!” to people, but when you consider the type and nature of questions and situations a Greeter is likely to encounter, it’s a valuable part of the program.  People will naturally gravitate to Greeters for questions about . . .  everything; probably even when you aren’t on duty. We expect coverage may be spotty this summer, achieving full staff by September. Brennan Hayden is coordinating this important program.  Expect to hear from him, and if you want to be proactive and identify yourself as a member of the Greeter team, email Brennan at This email address is being protected from spambots.
