Welcome to St Clare Catholic Church

Masses: PUBLIC Masses have been suspended in The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix due to the coronavirus pandemic.  Fr Hans and Fr Nick offer Mass privately
Live-stream. We live-stream at least one Mass every day.
Funerals and Weddings are permitted under the required conditions of 10 or fewer persons.
Confessions: confession times are suspended until your and our safety can be assured.
Our clergy and staff are available by phone.
Buildings: Closed until further notice. We are not able to assure your safety if we open buildings. We cannot guarantee that we can keep disinfecting everthing people touch if they were to come to church. If you wish to come pray on a bench outside of church or in your car, that's fine, but still, civil and medical authorities ask people to stay home. The Arizona governor issued an Executive Order effective March 30 asking people to stay at home except for essential services.
