Upcoming Events @ St. Clare

Open Door Sunday

One of our goals here at St. Clare's is to be "uncompromising in warmly welcoming our distant brothers and sisters why they experience the need for our friendship and celebration." If you are a sister or a brother who have been away from the table of the Lord or have not been coming often, we want the opportunity to welcome you and to help you experience the love of God present and active in this community. Join us on Sunday, June 7th, 2015 for a special Mass on the Feast of Corpus Christi at 11:30am. The celebration will be followed by a light refreshment in the school cafeteria. We are looking forward to you and your family joining us.
Our new parish manager Tom McMahon begins working at St. Clare’s on Monday, April 27, 2015.

Tom graduated as the salutatorian at Union Catholic High School and went on to complete his Bachelor’s Degree at Monmouth University. Eventually he would receive his Master’s Degree from New Jersey City University and Doctoral Degree from Rutgers University. He was fortunate enough to secure a fellowship to pay for his studies.
