  • Our Babies Made Mass:)!!!
    Our babies came to Church and parked their own transportation right outside the church.
    It was simply a beautiful sight to admire. Thank you parents and families for bringing them. Jesus said, "let the children come to me" and you answered that call. Keep them coming. The Church is their home and their parking spot will always be available:).

Here To Help

Have Hurricanes Harvey and Irma caused you to experience constant fearful emotions?

To have re-occuring disturbing memories of Super Storm Sandy?

 Given you the impulse to run for higher ground?

 Or, have you looked at the ocean and up at the overcast sky in fear?

 Or, are you worried about a loved one in another state or country? 

Remember to reach out and talk it out!

 St. Clare's Parish Counseling Program can provide you with supportive counseling and the resilience management that you just may need at this time or anytime for that matter.  There is never a fee charged for these services. We only ask that you to be proactive with your mental health. By reaching out when you need to talk in confidence to a professional you can decrease symptoms related to life's problems, sustain or regain your strengths and avoid suffering.

To schedule an appointment or to ask a question about the Parish Counseling Program. Please call me at 718-984-8456.
