I just recently visited St. Martins church after many years of absence. I am apalded by the behaivor of the staff and the priest. I can't think about this church without thinking about my mother. So many memories of mine were spent going to Sunday Mass along with being baptized, catechism, confirmation, and playing sometimes on the grounds of St. Martin Elementary School. My mother ironed the vestments and the linen for the alter for Sunday mass for many years. She is now 93 years old suffering from heart failure. She only has a few weeks/months to live and has not been able to attend church for a couple of years. So I had asked a staff member to have the priest come to her home for spiritual guidence and communion. Unfortunetly, they have only come once since November. I have called 3 times since then and I yet to hear from the priest nor the staff! I'm hurt and angry. What has happen to the Catholic structure in honoring a family parishener who is sick and dying.? Where am I going to have services for my mother when she dies?
