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
