Anchors of Our Community

As individual parishioners and as Saint Clement Parish, we seek deeper holiness, greater communion and wider service. Rooted in our Catholic tradition, empowered by the liturgy, and grateful to God for our blessings, we strive to live and grow our faith together in the following ways.

Saint Clement Parish will open its doors to welcome each member of our parish as we build a Catholic community of faith, nurtured with care and compassion.
