St. Martin De Porres
As you enter St.Dominic’s Church you will see on the left a statue of St.Martin De Porres. This statue was donated by Mousa and Jessamine Moses. Jessamine was pregnant with her third child and she wanted a son as her two previous children were daughters. She decided to pray to St.Martin for her wish to be fulfilled. She promised St.Martin that if she had a son she would donate a statue of himself to any church that wanted one. Jessamine’s prayers were answered and she had a son. She named him Martin and donated the statue to the church.
