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.
Our Church will be open Holy Week on:
Monday – for prayer/confessions: 4 -5:30 pm & 7 pm until all finished.
Tuesday & Wednesday: 4-6 pm for prayer
Holy Thursday: 4-6 pm for prayer
Good Friday: 2-6 pm for prayer but no formal led Stations of the Cross
Holy Saturday: 4-6 pm for prayer and confessions
Easter Sunday: 9-11 am for prayer
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN THE FEDERALLY MANDATED LIMIT OF NO MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE IN ONE GATHERING AND MAINTAIN A SIX FOOT DISTANCE FROM EACH OTHER.
