Welcome 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

What’s Happening Now

Per the latest correspondence from Archbishop Carlson, we will have no public Masses nor any other type of public liturgical services nor any other group activities until further notice including the Sacred Triduum and Easter. You will find signs on the doors of our Church making this very clear.
The Church will be open for personal, private prayer and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. See the schedule below. This schedule may be amended and updated later.
Please note too that our Eucharistic Adoration Chapel is closed until further notice.
Also, new or tentative dates for activities canceled or postponed are yet to be determined.
Please take all of this to heart, not just these points about our Church but even more so the warnings and directives being issued by the medical community and civil authorities concerning group size limitations and social distancing. The consequences can be most dire for us all if we ignore these warnings and directives.

 

ST. CLETUS IS STREAMING MASSES BEGINNING TOMORROW, April 5th. You can live stream Sunday mass at 7:30 AM tomorrow, 8:00 AM mass Monday through Wednesday, 7:00 PM mass Thursday through Saturday and 7:30 AM on Easter Sunday.
The masses will also be recorded so that if you cannot view the masses live, you can view the recording later in the day.  It will probably be at least an hour after the mass is finished for the recorded version to be viewed.
You can follow the same link for live or recorded masses.
