A message from Bishop Braxton:
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ:
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, fill your hearts throughout the New Year! As the Catholic Church celebrates the World Day of Peace today, I am pleased to share this Reflection with you. Please be generous with your time so that you can read it carefully. I invite you to reflect on its contents, pray about its concerns, and discuss its challenges with your sisters and brothers in Christ. This Reflection has a moving viewpoint in six parts.

Spirituality for Men...And the Role of the Father in the Family
The St. Clare Catholic Men for Christ group is honored to have Fr. Jim as our first guest speaker. The topic is “The Role of the Father in the Family”. All men of the parish, age 21 and older, are invited to join us in the Fellowship Hall on Saturday, April 25 from 8 – 10 a.m.
Coffee, donuts, bagels and other refreshments will be provided. Help us spread the word and invite your friends. There will be a Rosary recited at 7:30 for anyone interested in arriving a little early. Plan on meeting in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or the main sanctuary depending on the turnout.
The St. Clare Catholic Men’s for Christ (CFCM) group recently formed this past January. Several of the men have attended the annual St. Louis CFCM over the past few years and felt called to begin a parish level group following the same theme, but on a monthly basis. We share the vision statement of the St. Louis CFCM but at the parish level, “Focused on Building the Kingdom of God here at St. Clare and Beyond.” Our Mission is to provide a venue for prayer, fellowship and spiritual nourishment for the men of St. Clare parish and to be a springboard into
greater commitment and involvement of the life and ministries of our parish. We will meet the fourth Saturday morning of each month, parish event calendar permitting, and offer a program of guest speakers, informative/
instructional Catholic videos or other Catholic Topic of the Month that won’t involve any advanced preparation time for anyone that wants to attend. Just come and be fed, both literally and spiritually!
