God is a friend who is real ... who loves ... who we can trust ...

a friend forever ... and a friend for EVERYONE! 

Our children earned spare change doing chores to donate for “Turn on the Water!” social justice outreach through Catholic Relief Services to help provide clean water for those that need it for cooking, drinking, crops, hygiene, and livestock. They donated $216.71, enough to provide 7 hand washing stations! Every little bit can make a BIG difference!

The Kingdom of God…is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground,

is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches,
so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.”

Mark 4:30b,31-32 https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/061624.cfm

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.

but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ.

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
