Warm Hugs from Fr. Richard

The Warm Hugs from Fr. Richard Initiative is delivering warm meals once a week to the ICU in SIUH South in honor of Fr. Richard.

We are working with Portobello Restaurant who caters and delivers the meals. To join the group of amazing donors who are making this initiative possible, please email mnoel@stclaresi.com. You can also complete the attached form here. Feel free to mail or drop off a check in any amount. Write the check to the Church of St. Clare, attention Gerri Smith. In the memo area be sure to specify that  it is for the Warm Hugs Initiative.

Cardinal Dolan's Statement on Racial Justice

The Commission of Religious Leaders, chaired by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, has issued an important statement on racial justice and the death of George Floyd, available here.  Addressing "all people of conscience," the statement concludes: "We need not only serious thoughts but also firm action, as we work together with all members of our community to find that critical cure for human hatred."

Seeking meaningful and lasting solutions in the weeks and months ahead, as a starting point, may we all reflect deeply on how we can better fulfill God's commandment to love our neighbors.
