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:
“If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts.”
In last Sunday’s Gospel, “Where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them”, as a declaration...a proclamation...of a truth that is vital for my well-being. God doesn’t want me to be alone. In fact, He explicitly invites me to find Him in community. This isn’t necessarily effortless for an introvert like me.
At the risk of admitting how I missed the obvious, I never anticipated the reality that the number of people in my immediate family multiplies and grows as their children establish their own families. Our gatherings are loud, chaotic, and often explosive. Real life is messy. What a wonderful reminder from our loving God. In the midst of the muddled experience that is community, that’s where I’ll find Him.
Thank you, Father, for the gift of my messy family.
Until next time,
