Upcoming Events

May 2017

Jubilee Year of Fatima

Pope Francis has granted a plenary indulgence opportunity for the 100th anniversary of the Fatima apparitions throughout the centennial year ending November 26, 2017.

To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful besides the ordinary conditions (go to Confession and Communion, be interiorly detached from sin and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father) must:

Pray before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima: To the faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October 2017, and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima.

 To the faithful who, because of age, illness or other serious cause, are unable to get around, may pray in front of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and must spiritually unite themselves to the jubilee celebrations on the days of the apparitions, the 13th of each month, between May and October 2017. They must also “offer to merciful God with confidence, through Mary, their prayers and sufferings or the sacrifices they make in their own lives.


Mary & Men: A Morning Meditation

Saturday 8:30-12:30P  May 13 Upper Room– Men of all ages are invited to attend this event

What kind of relationship do you have with the Blessed Virgin Mary? Why does a relationship with Mary matter for our personal and spiritual growth? Why does Mary matter specifically to men?

Come join us on the 100th Anniversary of Fatima as we explore the answer to these and many more questions at the Men’s Morning Meditation, sponsored by the St. Clement’s Catholic Mens’ Community. Men of all ages are invited to attend this event, which will begin with refreshments at 8:30am to be followed by a talk at 9am sharp. The day will also include time for discussion, Confession, Adoration, and Mass.  This year’s Men’s Morning Meditation will take place in the Upper Room at St. Clement’s, accessible through the doors to the right of the altar.


Evangelization Series Wednesdays 7-8pm 

May 10, 17, 24 Upper Room

Come join us in the Upper Room  for a special three week series on Evangelization. Each Wednesday, from 7-8pm, there will be an interactive workshop lasting just one hour. These workshops are designed to give you very basic tools for evangelization in the vocation particular to you. 

Part I: Prayer For the first week, we will be covering the foundation of evangelization, prayer.. This workshop will cover the importance of prayer as a foundation for evangelization, as well as give you tools for leading others in prayer and intercessory prayer.

Part II: Testimony For this, the second week of the series, there will be a one hour workshop on the importance of personal witness.. After this workshop, you will come away with practical tools to organize and tell your personal testimony of the ways Jesus has worked in your life!

Part III: Spreading the Gospel For this, the third and final week of the series, there will be a one hour workshop that will train you on a very simple method of explaining what we as Catholics believe. Christ asks us to spread the Gospel to all nations, but what is it that we are spreading? What is the Gospel message and how do you explain it to people who have no contextual background for understanding it? We will explore these questions and present a very simple method that can help you to have these important conversations in the future.
