Here's what's happening at St. Clare Church. 
ST. CLARE ANNUAL GIVING TREE

Simply pick an ornament off the giving tree in the Gathering Space, shop for the gift listed, wrap it (no bows), place the tag on the outside of the gift and return by December 14.  Gifts are for families and children in need and will be distributed through St. Vincent de Paul and Fontebella Maternity Shelter.

Important! Any gift turned in late will not get to the recipient.  Please be responsible and return gifts by December 14.
ST. CLARE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
Features Special Angel
Another limited edition Christmas ornament featuring St. Clare Church art will debut this weekend! This year's ornament features an angel that adorns the antique sanctuary lamp in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel and includes Scripture "Do not be afraid: for behold, I proclaim to you Good News of great joy." Luke 2:10
The ornaments are $10 each and will be available after Mass November 26 through December 18. Proceeds benefit the parish's building fund. 
SMILE! IT'S ST. CLARE'S ANNIVERSARY!

Our parish has a rich history and exciting future, and you're a part of it! Join the celebration by being a part of St. Clare's 150th Anniversary Family Album.

Partnering with Lifetouch professional photographers, we invite you to sit for a portrait to be included in this new parish directory. Each parish household that participates will receive a complimentary directory and an 8x10 photo. Purchasing portraits is optional.

Photos will be taken at St. Clare Church on January 5-7 (dates especially encouraged for families with college students home on winter break) as well as February 21-25.
