I also need to say that your financial support of St. Clare Church during these next 8 weeks is imperative.  Please continue to send us your envelopes either through the mail or by dropping them off at the rectory, simply by sliding them through the slot in the front door.  There is no need to ring the doorbell when you do this.  For years now, the parish offices have been in the Parish Center (old school offices), not the rectory.  Staff will still be there to answer phone calls, however, we want to minimize face to face contact at the office.  

This letter is incredibly hard for me to write, and it may feel like the Church is abandoning us at a time when we need her and her Sacraments the most.  We are not abandoning you, but we are trying to be compliant with our governor and the CDC’s recommendations for safety.  My plans are to regularly update you with spiritual encouragement as well as letters and homilies posted to our website, which is printed below.  Please be assured of my prayers for you and I ask that you please pray for me.

In Christian Love,


Fr. Richard A. Gray,

Your Pastor
