Being Grateful


As we go about in our world, let us follow St. Clare's advice to bless God for every tree, every flower, every creature, every neighbor, and, yes, God's very presence within our own souls.

Quoted by Pope Francis I




Our Church


St Clare of Assisi Roman Catholic Church

Our PARISH mission statement

"Saint Clare of Assisi parishioners strive to be faithful disciples of Christ's Catholic community, drawing strength from the Eucharist, living the Gospel of Jesus without compromise, doing works of charity and justice.

In our lives we seek to be "doers" of the word:

  • learning from Sacred Scripture, the Church's Tradition and from its successes and failures in being a sign of God's love.
  • practicing hospitality, welcoming everyone, living our faith with such joy that we transform the entire community, attracting many to find Christ in our midst and respecting every human life as sacred.
  • deepening spirituality where everyone feels called to develop a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus through a lifelong journey of continuing education and enrichment.
  • living stewardship where everyone participates actively in sharing their gifts of time, talent, and treasure to build the Kingdom of God in gratitude for all God's gifts."

St Clare of Assisi

Our Patron Saint

Place your mind before the mirror of eternity!
Place your soul in the brilliance of glory!
Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance!
And transform your whole being into the image of the
Godhead Itself
through contemplation!
So that you too may feel what His friends feel
as they taste the hidden sweetness
which God Himself has reserved
from the beginning
for those who love Him.
~ Saint Clare of Assisi
