------ Parish Mission Statement -----

United in tradition and based on the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we are the Roman Catholic Community of Saint Clare in Essex. As a parish family we accept the call of Jesus to serve Him and on one another by:

  • Striving to spread the Gospel message through active worship and education
  • Encouraging each other in love to become the person the Lord has called us to be
  • Providing activities that foster cooperation and fellowship for all ages
  • Reaching out to those who are sick, lonely or less fortunate.




List of Parish Events for the year



The Stallings Hall is available for rent for family gatherings, dances or social events.  Please call Carla Berkenkemper in Parish Center for information.



Recycling of Aluminum Cans:

The recycling of Aluminum cans has long been a tradition here at St. Clare. To make it even easier for you and your family we now have an aluminum recycling bin in the back of our parking lot, next to the dumpster. You can either place cans beside it and our maintenance department will throw them in for you. The bin is for ALUMINUM CANS only and they must not be PLASTIC or PAPER bags. Recycling not only helps to protect our environment it also helps our school and parish with various supplies.
