 UP COMING EVENTS

 

September 29 and October 2: A Walk Through the Mass, Part 3: Liturgy of the Eucharist. The presentation with Fr. EJ Stein, OFM will be in Church at 7pm Thursday and repeated Sunday at 10:45am in Church.  The sessions in Spanish have been posponed.

From Fr. E.J. - 

 Where will Father E.J. be September 26-29? Father E.J. and Father Al, OFM – pastor of St. Francis Seraph parish, our partner in our Family of Parishes -- will both be away a few days this week, going to West Virginia to participate in the Archdiocesan Convocation of Priests. At this convocation, the priests and the Archbishop will pray together, have daily Mass, hearconfessions of one another, listen to presentations, and have discussions. Topics will include how recent priest transfers are going, church renewal, and the progress of Beacons of Light.
 
Fathers E.J. and Al will leave after their respective Monday Masses on September 26 and return by 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 29. St. Clement weekday Masses will be as usual throughout the week. If a funeral is needed, Father E.J. can have that funeral as early as Friday morning, September 30. If the need for the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick arises while the pastor is gone, available priests might be found among the priests at St. Clement Friary or among priests you may know personally. Every hospital in the Archdiocese has assigned to it a priest-chaplain or a chaplain with access to a priest.
 
Arrangements were made 11 days ago to begin the repair of the church steps and landings on Monday, October 3. Last week’s bulletin explained the job which is to last two weeks. During these two weeks, some church doors will be inaccessible while others will be accessible. The accessible doors will be clearly marked. The side door will always be accessible.
 
Do you enjoy watching a juggler try to juggle several balls at one time? Sometimes excitement builds as additional balls are added while he or she continues juggling. Have you tried to juggle? It can be fun to try to manage. Juggling at St. Clement currently involves the parish Finance Council work to understand our finances in light of debt repayment; continuing participation in the OFM Franciscans joining six U.S. provinces into one national province; and engagement in the five-year archdiocesan process of Beacons of Light with its reorganization of parishes.
 
Now, in addition to all that, the bishops of the United States have started a three-year program of “Eucharistic Revival,” to deepen devotion to and knowledge about the Eucharist. The program aims to support and “start a fire” of devotion to the Eucharist with a particular focus on the local level — dioceses, parishes, and families. A big part of this revival will be a National Eucharistic Congress to be held in Indianapolis in 2024. St. Clement has already begun to participate in this revival through our current series of interactive presentations on the Mass -- two weeks ago, last week, and in the coming two weeks. Imagine our church full of worshippers again on Sundays. Please keep this Eucharistic Revival in your prayers.
 
God bless everyone!  Fr. EJ
