Fr. Richard's Homilies

Fr. Richard's weekly homilies are available here. Please click here to listen to his hope filled homily for the 1st Sunday of Advent. If you missed Thanksgiving Day Mass, you will also enjoy this fun homily, in which the Children who dressed up as Natives and Pilgrims were active contributors, calling us to be Thankful. Enjoy Both!

2019 Thanksgiving Day Mass Box

On Thanksgiving Day many of our students both from St. Clare School and St. Clare Religious Education dressed up at Natives and Pilgrims to help us give thanks to God. They sang, they brought up the gifts and they also helped Fr. Richard distribute bread to our parishioners who attended Mass. A sincere thanks to them and their parents who registered them and brought them to Church on the special day of giving thanks and family. Enjoy their pictures below.

2019 Girl Scouts Presentation

On Sunday, December 1, 2019 our St. Clare Girl Scouts used the scriptural passages for the First Sunday of Advent to help our children who attend Children Liturgy understand the importance of including everyone. The message was on courage. When we are courageous we work in teams. It takes courage and team work to stand up to bullies. In their lesson they shared with the younger children that "There is no “i” in team. It’s not “me”, it’s “we”. Always include others because someday you will be the child on the outside of the circle. Open your heart and invite God in."  Focusing on the fact that Advent is also a preparation for Jesus' second coming, they shared with the children that it is important to "treat everyone nicely because you don’t know when God is going to come and judge you." The message was clear and our children really understood it in a clear and fun way. A sincere thanks to our Girl Scouts on their journey to earn their "My Promise, My Faith" Badge. Well done. Please enjoy the pictures below.
