We are the Catholic Community of St. Martin de Porres, called by God to worship Him and serve his people of Dripping Springs, Texas. We have come together to share in the fellowship of Jesus Christ; we are committed to His teachings and examples.
Our mission is sacramental, evangelical, and ministerial.
"He excused the faults of others. He forgave the bitterest injuries, convinced that he deserved much severer punishments on account of his own sins. He tried with all his might to redeem the guilty; lovingly he comforted the sick; he provided food, clothing and medicine for the poor; he helped, as best he could, farm laborers and Negroes, as well as mulattoes, who were looked upon at that time as akin to slaves: thus he deserved to be called by the name the people gave him: 'Martin of Charity.'"
--POPE JOHN XXIII regarding St. Martin de Porres
