Our Worship

dscf0066

As members of a faith community we realize that our simple prayers add nothing to the greatness of God Who, in and of Himself, is totally complete. We also recognize that our prayers of adoration, contrition, thanksgiving and supplication make us more complete as they unite us with the angels and saints who continually praise God at His heavenly throne. Prayer gives us a glimpse of the life that awaits us as the faithful stewards of God’s manifold gifts. The following is a summary of our liturgical life at St. Clement.
