"Beyond Sunday" Campaign is Underway

As the Archbishop announced recently, “This historic campaign will address two critical funding needs: 1. The creation of The Education Fund whose grant-making will increase access to Catholic education for lower and middle class families through scholarship support while working to strengthen Catholic schools’ academic capacity and management systems to ensure their quality and competitiveness for all families in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, and, 2. Financial support for our Archdiocesan parishes. Catholic education is essential to both the long-term viability of our faith and to the communities our schools serve. They play an essential role in the spiritual development of our children and the economic development of places where we live, work and pray. The goal of Beyond Sunday is to raise in excess of $100 million through archdiocesan-wide efforts over the next two years in an effort to transform the archdiocesan system of education, which currently serves more than forty-thousand students within the archdiocese. I ask for your prayerful support during this time as we work together to sustain one of the most valuable gifts that we can give the children in our Archdiocese: a Catholic education.”  For more information see


Fr. BenzWelcome to the Church of St. Cletus website. St. Cletus is a very active parish, and this level of activity is reflected in the numerous ministries, organizations, and committees you will find here. I hope that this website will be a stepping stone for greater involvement on your part here at St. Cletus. If you would like to subscribe to my emails, click here.

Let me also use this space to thank the members of our parish for making St. Cletus the wonderful parish it is.

People and families give a parish its vitality. St. Cletus is vibrant because of you. Every week, we gather for the Eucharist to worship our God and celebrate who we are as God's people. Let us never forget that it is the Eucharist, our most treasured prayer, which gives us our identity. Thank you,

Fr. Jim Benz
