Our Parish’s Strategic Pastoral Plan
St. Cletus is in the process of initiating a strategic pastoral plan which will guide our parish for the next three years. You will find the letter describing the background of this process here. You are also encouraged to view the video which explains this plan in greater detail here. Look for opportunities to view this video in person soon. We are very much looking forward to implementing our Strategic Pastoral Plan.
EVERY BODY TOGETHER: A Covid-19 Update
When the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, our faith helped guide us through the overwhelming times of loneliness and despair. Jesus took our hands and asked us to trust Him as He walked with us through the darkness. He continues to walk with us, leading us to the light.
As the world moves forward on the path of healing, we invite everybody in the Archdiocese of St. Louis to gather together again to experience the Eucharist—the true presence of the Body of Christ—in its fullest form. On July 1, 2021, Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski will lift the dispensation of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for all of the faithful in the Archdiocese of St. Louis—meaning that we will all be called to return to Holy Mass in-person each Sunday.
Our parishes continue to follow protocols to help parishioners feel safe and comfortable returning to Mass; more information about the latest COVID-19 guidelines in the archdiocese, as well as a YouTube video from the Archbishop can be found at https://www.archstl.org/we-are-the-body-of-christ.
As you reflect on returning to Church, remember that Jesus has been with us all along—and that he longs for us to re-join Him at Mass with open arms—everybody together. For we are the Body of Christ.
