2018 Parish Feast

The rain could not keep us from celebrating a beautiful Parish Feast. Thank you to all who helped to make the day possible and to all who came to celebrate with us. Enjoy the pictures and Happy Feast Month!!!

2018 Parish Feast

Rally for Families

"When I was a stranger, you welcomed...when Lord did I welcome?...When you did it to the least of my brothers" (Mt. 25:31-46). On the rainy afternoon of Sunday, August 12th, St. Clare joined other faith communities on the Island to share this message of compassion by which Jesus will judge at the end. The rain could not stop us, rather it united us for a cause bigger than ourselves, families who are still separated. We pray for them and we pray that the leaders of our country deciding their fate, may hear Jesus' call for justice. "Know Justice, know Peace."
