You are not alone...
Pastoral Care is one of the most essential duties of the disciples of Jesus, especially care of those who are in most need. In its mission to minister to all who are in need, Saint Clement offers support in many ways. In addition to private counseling offered by our priests and professional staff members, we can offer referrals to support groups in Lincoln Park and throughout the city.
Fr. Ken and Fr. Manny together with the Flynn's participate in the 2011 HIV/AIDS 5K run.
Communities of Care: AIDS Outreach
The AIDS Pastoral Care Network and Saint Clement Church are partners in this ministry. The mission of the community is to provide compassionate, non-judgmental secondary care to people with HIV/AIDS, their families, loved ones and friends. Each community is made up of seven to 10 people. Caregivers respond to a common call from God to engage in service and ministry. For information on volunteering, see APCN's website.
Several Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are held at Saint Clement every week. For a list of dates and times, contact the parish receptionist Gael Day.
