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:
It is hard to believe that next Sunday is the First Sunday of Advent. Where has this year gone? It is time for us to CLEAN HOUSE. “Christ, Who offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice to God through the eternal spirit, can purify our inner self.” (Hebrews 9:14)
Purify my soul, Lord, during this Advent. “Scrub” it and “clean” it just as my mother used to clean her house before Christmas.
Please give me Your objectivity. You spot those little resentments I’ve tucked away, that silent vindictiveness I carry inside, that veiled anger that masquerades as an artificial smile, that envy that stings when someone betters me.
So, this is my goal for Advent: to uncover my sins and to repent of them. Lord, give me the courage to face the evil within me, and give me Your constant grace to do battle with it.
Until next time,
