A Letter From Father Addisalem Mekonnen
As the Pastor of this Church, I welcome you to our website and thank you for viewing it. As you have noticed, we are a vibrant community promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ in North Philadelphia. In the midst of many challenges, we have been a beacon of hope in this community for over 100 years.
I especially invite you and your family to join us for Worship on Sunday Morning. You will be blessed by the Celebration of Catholic Mass, where we encounter Christ in the Eucharist, the Word, Song and Community. All are welcome! Please listen to a portion of the power of God’s Word preached here by listening to…..“The Spoken Word”.
In one of the best known Psalms – Psalm 23, we hear, “my cup overflows”. Those words are very true here at Saint Martin de Porres Catholic Church in the Kingdom of North Philadelphia. Our cup overflows with many blessings from our Awesome God. Join us!
