Booklets and commitment cards will also be available in the gathering space this weekend.  Commitment cards may be dropped in the collection basket or turned in to the parish office.  If you have any questions about a ministry you're considering, please contact Stephen Eros - stephene@stclarechurch.org

St. Clare of Assisi Building Ministry in Action!
 On Saturday 13 May, volunteers from our church helped build a house for the East Side Heart & Home Family Center 2017 House Build in East St. Louis. Church members were instrumental during the "Blitz Build" that starts, at the beginning of the day, with just the foundation; and ends the day, with a roof and siding on the house.  
Other volunteer opportunities coming up in the next few months:  
- Drywall East Side House on Wednesday, 24 May
- Blitz Build of O'Fallon Habitat for Humanity House in mid-June, and drywall in July
- Clean lot for newly donated property for future build in O'Fallon in June
Please contact Dave Zimmerer at email dbzimm@charter.net if you would like to help.
