Start preparing for Sunday today;

Jesus said to his disciples:
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.
I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.

Matthew 5:17 https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/021223.cfm


Pope Francis established Sunday of the Word of God on the 3rd Sunday of Ordinary Time devoted to the celebration, study & dissemination of the Word of God. He is inviting ALL Catholics across the world to deepen their appreciation, love & faithful witness to God & his Word. See the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Resources on Sunday of the Word of God.

We give thanks for all those in Faith Formation here at the Church of St. Clare
and pray for God's continued blessing and protection for our children, families and catechists!

The family is the fundamental cell of society,
where we learn to live with others despite our differ­ences and to belong to one another;
it is also the place where parents pass on the faith to their children.”
 Evangellii Gaudium (Joy of the Gospel) #66. Pope Francis.

Calling All Disciples!

Catechesis from Greek means to “echo” our faith. Please join us in praying for our catechists and pray for those who God is calling to join us in this ministry. “Jesus did not call volunteers to do a job but he called disciples to answer God’s call of service to God and the Church” (Pope Francis, Symposium on Catechesis, July 2017). Do you feel called to join our faith formation team? If so, please contact Lori Mascia lmascia.stclare@att.net



On August 11th we celebrated our patroness, Saint Clare
