Local Sharing Parish
Saint Clement and Our Lady of Mercy in Albany Park are sharing parishes.
Representatives of both parishes meet regularly in activities that nurture faith, build parish and community life, and further mutual understanding. Saint Clement supports Our Lady of Mercy, a largely Hispanic and Filipino congregation, financially through the Clement Commits program.
Saint Clement parishioners who are attorneys staff legal aid clinics, offering advice and handling cases for OLM parishioners. All Saint Clement parishioners participate in sharing activities and programs, such as the annual school supply drive for Our Lady of Mercy's religious education program and the Posada each December.
If you would like to help with the legal clinic, please e-mail Sarah Flosi or call her at 773 525 4954.
To be involved in other collaborations with our sharing parish, contact Anne Huston at 312-944-7153.
Sack Lunch Program
Saint Clement parishioners provide sack lunches for the hungry and needy in the neighborhood every Friday of the year, including holidays. Our volunteers agree to provide six sack lunches for their assigned Friday, making the lunches from home based on the guidelines below, and dropping them off at the parish office.
Chicago Shares offers a way for the community to respond to the needs of the homeless and most vulnerable among us. Through the Chicago Shares program, parishioners can purchase voucher booklets worth $5 to be distributed to those in need instead of cash, to be redeemed at participating stores and restaurants for food and toiletry items (no alcohol or tobacco products). As the Chicago Shares website states, with these vouchers, "Chicagoans can be sure their donations feed the hungry." Read More.
