PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
The purpose of St. Clement of Rome Parish is to foster and enhance a spirit of community among its members, community which returns its gifts to God in a primary way through worship in the Eucharist and which shares its faith through witness, actions, ministries and prayers.

My Dear Parishioners:
“I did not come to condemn the world but to save it.”
An old woman in the village was said to be receiving divine apparitions. The local Priest demanded proof of their authenticity.
“When God next appears to you,” he said, “ask for a list of my sins, which are known only to me and to God. If the list is right, that should be evidence enough.”
The woman returned a month later and the Priest asked if God had appeared to her again. She said yes.
“Did you ask the question?”
“What did God say?”
God said, “Tell your Priest I have forgotten his sins.”
Until next time,
