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

The general dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation will remain in place for all Catholics of the archdiocese until further notice, as many individuals continue to have concerns for the health and safety of themselves and their loved ones. Parishioners who are symptomatic or who have been exposed to another with the virus should not come to church, in accordance with national, state and local health directives. Attendees should take their temperature at home before determining whether they should attend Mass. Anyone over 60 years old and those with underlying health complications are encouraged to participate in Masses via livestream only.

Eucharistic Adoration will be in the Day Chapel, Monday through Friday, immediately after the 8 am Mass until 8 pm.  Please enter Chapel through the side door only.

Reconciliation will be Mondays 4 to 5:30 and Saturdays 4 to 4:45.
