What should I do with my old blessed palm?
Once a religious object is blessed and dedicated for divine worship or veneration, it must be treated with reverence and not be used in either an improper or profane way or thrown in the trash. Palms are to be burned, and the ashes then used for distribution on Ash Wednesday or returned to the ground.
So…we are collecting old blessed palms to burn for ashes for Ash Wednesday, February 17. If you have any to contribute, please bring them to the designated basket in the gathering area of church by Sunday, February 14. Thank you!
ELEPHANT IN THE PEW: THE BIRDS & THE BEES: CATHOLIC EDITION
Fr. Andrew gave a great talk this week. If you missed it don't fear we have it right here. We will take a pause on this series during Lent so you can attend our Lenten Mission but we will pick back up in April with our LGBTQ+ talk with Fr. Martin.
It's almost that time for 40 Days for Life. We hope you can join us in March. Talk about stepping out of your comfort zone to pray for those in need or prayers. This Lent challenge yourself to "do the hard" and grab a friend to pray for pregnant women who may see the pregnancy as unwanted. Pray they feel God's love and want to share this amazing love with their unborn child.
40 Days for Life
Join us in front of Planned Parenthood (4251 Forest Park Ave) to pray for one hour on Wednesday, March 10.

WE SOLD OUT – AGAIN!
Next time we will make more!
The St. Clare Knights of Columbus want to thank the parish family for supporting our Super Bowl – Kettle Corn fundraiser. We sold out after the 10:00 am mass, which meant no Kettle Corn for the parishioners at the Noon mass. Sorry about that. Next time, we will make more Kettle Corn. The proceeds will be used to purchase new kneelers for the church pews. We are just getting started to reach this goal – so, stay tuned. We will keep you updated on our goal

The next consecration for St. Joseph starts on February 15th. If you would like to participate in a consecration we are offering books at a discounted price of $10. You can buy online on our website or drop money off at the rectory.
While we are not putting this on as a parish we encourage you to grab some friends and family and embark on this journey together! Do that little thing called evangelization and have shared experiences. Trust me... try it once and you will be hooked! 😉 If groups aren't your thing you can do it by yourself as well.
If you are beginning on February 15th you are invited to join other people in the SCA family to consecrate yourself to St. Joseph on March 19th before Stations of the Cross.
