As parents, you are the primary educators of your children. In the sacrament of Baptism, you promised to be your child’s “first teachers in the ways of the faith” and to be “the best of teachers”. Saint Clare Catholic School and Parish are here to help and support you in this important task.
Parish Catechetical Programs
"The parish is the preeminent place for the catechesis of adults, youth, and children. ‘Knowledge of the faith, liturgical life, the following of Christ are all a gift of the Spirit which are received in prayer, and similarly a duty of spiritual and moral study and witness. Neither aspect may be neglected.’ Pastors have the duty to provide catechesis; parishioners have the reciprocal duty to participate in and support the catechetical activities of the parish.” (National Directory for Catechesis, 60)

Our Monday Program meets on Mondays from 4:00-5:15 for our 1st - 4th graders and 6:30-8:00 for our 5th - 8th graders. This program meets in a classroom setting with Guest Speakers visiting periodically through out the year.
Our Sunday Family Program meets at 10:00-11:45. Our K-8th Youth receive faith formation in a classroom setting while parents have an opportunity for formation beginning with our Christ Life Program. Our Christ Life programming provides adults with a weekly faith series that brings individuals closer to Christ.
