30 Years of Serivce

On Sunday, June 10th, our St. Clare Dance Company celebrated 30 years of service to children and their families in our community at their annual dance recital at the Staten Island Academy. The company has provided a safe space for children to dance and and to grow. Congratulations to the Dance Company. Please see their pictures below.

2018 Dance Company 30th Anniversary

Thank you First Communicants

On May 26, 2018 and on June 3, 2018, some of our First Communicants joined the rest of the community to crown Mary and again the next week to process with Jesus from the church to the chapel. Inspired by this walk of faith, two of parishioners, reminiscing of the Great Feast of Corpus as celebrated in their home country, Ghana and Italy, shared their pictures and stories with us. What a grace. Thank you to all who participated in these amazing celebrations of faith. I know you've inspired me and I know you've touched the life of someone walking on Nelson Avenue that day. Please see pictures of both event below.
